How can I delete the ext3 partition?


Hi
I installed on my Pc Mandriva one 2007 from Live Cd.
Now I need an utility under WinXP (I can't Log in LinuxOS) that delete the Linux swap file and the ext3 partition.
I try out Partition magic 8.0 but it doesnt' support the Linux swap of Mandriva one.
Thank you
puntino

You could use the gparted live cd. It has a GUI interface thats similar in functionality to Partition Magic and you can use it do manage most Linux/Unix partitions.

An extended partiton is a special form of primary partition that can contain other partitions (logical partitions).
