You can do that when you install from your CD. Just tell it to utilize the whole drive.

Stick your ubuntu cd into the cd drive, then reboot (turn the computer off then back on). Select the option to install to hard drive. Follow the options, then select the option to "use the whole disk". The installer will write over the old operating systems, and your new ubuntu install will be over the entire hard drive.

Well, gparted is pretty easy to use. You can download it and burn it to a CD, put it in and reboot.
Use it to reformat the whole drive, then reinstall Ubunto.
I'm no expert, but I have used it a few times with no problems.
tOP explained it better than I did!
