Do you mean "Clean install"?

You can do that by booting to the WindowsXP installer CD. From here, you can reformat the drive, and fresh install XP.

And no, you cannot reformat the harddisk from Guest account. Even if you can logon to the adminstration account, you cannot reformat the harddisk either.
