Help with Partitions?


Hello, I would like to ask for help with my partitions. I have searched on this before and haven't found an answer. :0)

I was dualbooting XP/Redhat9
I wanted to use just XP on the pc, so I used a bootdisk, and type fdisk /mbr in console. It removed grub and now my pc boots straight to XP, however I have a 10gb linux partition that I cannot remove as it doesn't pick it up in XP. I cannot run Partition Magic 8 in XP as it says it cannot identify a drive (the linux one).

How do I remove the linux partition and regain the 10gb space?

Many thanks
Boggit

Put in your XP cd and boot from it, go as far as the partitioning part and remove the linux partition (format it as FAT or NTFS) PM or XP will then be able to work with it.
