Just boot from the install cd and reformat the drive, then reinstall the system.
Or you can download gparted, boot from the cd, and repartition or reformat the drive.
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php

I would suggest to start a new thread for every problem, so people can help you in a better way.
Use descriptive titles, and give as much info as possible.

Kind regards
