NTFS file system(Quick)

Dell sent me directions for reformatting and reinstalling xp.
They said to select the above as that is the way it was shipped.
I notice one of the choices is 'format the partition using the NTFS file system' w/o the quick.
Shoud I do the obvious + follow the manufacturer? Thank you

A quick format is just an erase of all files on the drive. Unless you had a problem with bad sectors it will be fine to use the quick. Using the regular format will take a good deal longer but certainly won't hurt anything.
