Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok... I just uninstalled Linux off the comp got rid of my LILO boot fixed my mdr etc..... But no i have 45 gigs for windows and 15 gigs that was used for linux that is unallocated... I tryed to resize my C: partition but when i did it gave me an error with the batch.... so now it is still 45 gigs win and 15gigs free space.....
How do i get the 15 gigs into the 45 gigs to make it 60 gigs for win?
And no im not getting rid of linux... i just built my new comp so im doing full lin on that comp.
nono... it now just 15 gigs unallocated.. Because there is no file system it would nto merge... So i went to resiez Drive C and made it tha max that it could be which took away my partition but when i did it i got a batch error ... and it just loaded back up windows but its still 45gigs windows and 15gigs unallocated
well... i tried that but since the 15 gigs is unallocated it wont merge it it will only merge 2 fat32 etc.... filesystem partitions. Should i then create a fat32 file system on the 15 gigs and then merge the 45 gigs w/ the 15gigs?
If you can create it as Primary, do that. Since your C drive is most likely primary (yes, yours is from your Screenshots ) that will probably be your best bet. Since your existing primary partition is going to basically consume the other one though, it probably doesn't really matter.
For now, I'd say go primary. Format the unallocated space as primary fat32, then merge em.
And the merge is what gave you the error? Try looking up the error, see if it gives you a clue as to why it's erroring out.
If the partitions are both viewable now in win, good. You have back your 60GB, so you now just have to remove the partition and merge the drives. Assuming you find out what the error means, fix it and then merge em.
