Okay, so here's the deal. Up until this point I was dual-booting my main computer. I mostly did it for games and whatnot, but I've finally gotten around to building another computer, and this one is solely for gaming (yes it's Windows, but I've come to the conclusion that Linux isn't as hardcore with gaming as I'd like to be :P). The benefit to this is I no longer need Windows on this computer, but I'm lost as to how I should go about it. I have two HDD, but the first one is the one that has Windows on it, so that's the one I'm looking at. Here's the output from fdisk:
Command (m for help): p
Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

/dev/hda6 2121 3366 10008463+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda7 3367 9729 51110766 83 Linux
I figured I would just delete /dev/hda1. I had a feeling this (since that's where my computer boots from) would make my machine unbootable, but if I booted up Knoppix (or Slackware rescue) and re-ran LILO and did all that stuff again, should I be in good shape? Or am I missing something?
It doesn't seem like it'd be too tough, but I thought since I'm not in a hurry, I'd ask first.
