This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

Well, after many many blunders and hacks of redhat 7.0 that I have done, it is time to do a format and fresh install. problem is, i cant figure out how. can someone kindly tell me how to format mt drive running linux? i actually havelinux red hat 7.0 for dummies, and i have learned alot from that in the last week, but no word on how to remove it. i dont want to overlay it with druid, i wanna wipe it squeeky clean. then i am gonna build some drives manually. can someone tell me how to uninstall erdhat without going thru and installing it again? thanx a million everyone!!
I ran into this problem a coulpe of months ago. Fdisk will remove all partitions but will not correct the change that is made to the mbr by the lilo loader. To reset this you must use a 3rd party partition program. I used one called Partition Manager and had the situation solved in less than 5 minutes. If you have a disk editor you can use it to view the mbr and see the lilo entery, but in order to cange it back to something that say windows can use you must reset the mbr with one of these 3rd party programs.
