I was wondering how I can get rid of my linux Redhat 7.2, I want to put windows me on it. When I try to find some of the partition's on fdisk I can't find it, I figured that linux is using it. So how do I get rid of Linux Redhat 7.2 on my machine and install Window's ME.(I know how to install window's by the way) haha
The easiest way is to boot with your Redhat cd and when it comes to installing, select custom and start disk druid. Then wipe your existing partitions on there off and write to the disk. Then before it starts to go any further into the install, just reboot.
Or you can get a win2k boot up disk and the program that you boot with will detect linux partitions.

May I remind you we don't tell members to leave to seek answers. And this is Linux related as he is wanting to know how to remove a Linux partition.
If it was the case where we told members to leave cause they are asking a question about Windows, then we wouldn't answer Samba and dual boot questions neither.
Plus most likely windows only users aren't familiar with removing Linux partitions so anyone is more likely to get a better answer here.
When you start the installation like if it was your first time, you want to choose custom installation. Then from there you can repartition, etc.
Ummm...trickykid? You guys lost your sense of humor down there in Texas? I must have missed the part in the agreement about not putting in anything that people might get a laugh at. I thought it was pretty obvious that I was kidding and notice I did not say "Go somewhere else and ask this."

Sorry for the mix-up sir.
Actually we didn't lose our sense of humor but I didn't see any sort of smilies after your post. But someone seeking answers shouldn't be joked with, what if he took it the wrong way and didn't realize you were joking like I did as well.
Again, you should try to keep your posts constructive in most cases, people come here for answers, not for poeple to joke and laugh cause they have a problem. If you can't make a constructive post on a serious question, you should just move on to the next one or at least tell them your joking, then give an answer if you know it.
Remember, typed alphanumeric characters on a screen aren't the same as real expressions and tones you can give if you were saying it to them in person.
