What exactly do you need to know?

I've just never started from scratch before, and have no idea what to do. I went on the net and found some ME loading directions here and there, but they don't really seem all that complete. Do I really need to make a boot disk with a floppy?
I bought my PC from a shop that put it together, piece by piece, you could choose whatever you wanted.
This is what I have: Windows ME CD, Sound Blaster CD for my sound card, Tyan CD for my mother board, and thats it. One of the things I was worried about was the driver for my Surecom ethernet card, I don't remember if the cable guy had a disk or not.....I called and they said just drop by on Tuesday and they'd give me the driver on CD.
I have no issue with backing up all the files I want, I'll just burn themk all to CD, just pictures and music really, not much more. 20 Gig HD is only about 1/2-2/3 full.
I've got the drivers for other stuff like my Camera program, etc, no thats no problem.
I just needed the very basic directions, on how to wipe out the HD, and re-load ME in there, so I can start over. Its just the first step I wanna take, if my PC doesn't smarten up after that, I'll have to take more drastic measures...like replacing items, etc?
I hate to ask how to do this, I program industrial computers at work all the time, installing the drivers, firmware, etc, on PLCs, servo drives, keypads, and screens, etc. But I've never had to touch my PC.
Thanks for any ideas you can give me.
