Deleting Ext3 (Journalized Ext2) partitons
I installed Mandrake 8.2 and have now decided I want to get rid of it so I don't destroy my windows install accidently. It's taking up 20GB and I'm running low on hard drive space so I need to remove it. I used Parition Magic 7 to make the free space on my hard drive in the first place, but it won't do anything to Ext3 partitions, it thinks they're Ext2 and gets errors trying to delete or format them. Also, I am using WinXP pro. How can I delete the partitons to reclaim the space without destorying my other data? Is using FDISK safe? I just don't want to spend money on the solution.
EDIT: Using the Linux boot disk that it made when I installed the boot fails, so I can't use Linux to delete the partition.
