kendawg: Boot into linux rescue and use linux fdisk to delete all partitions on both disks.
1) Boot using either the 1st FC2 CD (“boot: linux rescue”) or the FC2 Rescue CD. When it asks about searching for linux installations, select “skip”.
2) From the command prompt, run:
to see if any partitions are present on either drive and to see the device names for the drives.
3) If partitions are present, run:
fdisk /dev/hda (or possibly fdisk /dev/sda)
using the device names listed by fdisk -l
3) From the fdisk command prompt, use the “p” and “d” commands to print/list and delete the partitions. When all are deleted, enter “w” to write the final setup. “q” quits without finalizing the setup.
4) Repeat this for the second drive (/dev/hdb or /dev/sda).
I had to do this a long time ago to clean up the geometry mess left by FC2 on a couple of drives. FC2 by itself ran fine, but when used in a windows dual-boot setup, it tended to be a partition nightmare. FC3 does not have the same problem.
