I made the unfortunate mistake of putting windows xp on my mac mini and accidentally formatting the drive and making a full xp partition on my machine, ever since if i try to boot up with my original tiger disc or my snow leopard install disc neither will boot, im not able to boot while pressing C into a disc, i cant boot while holding option and pick the cd that would normally appear or anything, i just want to be able to get this horrible xp off and re-install osx and do the boot camp partition correctly this time.

What do i need to do to???

You need to reset the PRAM - NVRAM prior to booting the machine with your Snow Leopard DVD.
