 Quick Question
How do you delete a Linux partition?  I'm running WinME (dual boot)
and Partition Magic wont run because of an error. I'd like to get back
the 4gbs that Linux is on

thanks

Try using Linux fdisk to remove the partition. However, you won't be
able to mess with the disk if it contains any mounted partitions, so
you'll have to use a boot floppy or something.

if your linux is still functional fdisk from linux
or just go back to your installation cd and delete the linux partitions from
there...and exit

then you can do fdisk from dos and recreate...

btw: although if you are careful doing fdisk is generally safe...
i'd back all your data anyway...just in case...

linux fdisk and i once had a minor argument about which partiton was what...
at least i got to test out my backup software that day :)
