    Do you want to erase the contents of the Macintosh HD? Or did you do it already?
    And do you mean Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard? Because 10.5 will either do a Erase and Install or Archive and Install, but 10.6 allows you to do neither of them and just repairs a wonky OS via a simple reinstallation.

    And have you looked at Disk Utility and seen, how Macintosh HD is formatted and what partition scheme it uses?
    The following links should help you finding that out:

    What about the other questions?
    Do you want to create a Clean Install?
    Is the HDD formatted correctly?

    Yes I want to reinstall a clean install.
    I do not know if the disk is formatted...

    Then have you followed all the steps the two guides I linked to about "Clean Install" provided?

    Open Disk Utility via the Install DVD and look for PARTITION MAP SCHEME:
