ok here goes.By the way this will either work(if you do it
or kill your partition
in a term as root issue fdisk /dev/hda
the commands are 1 letter based eg: m=menu w= write
ok now issue the p command to print to screen your current partition table
locate the one marked >32M for windows.I hope its listed as a primary partition ie hda1->4 if its in extended you will have to delete it and create it as primary n=new d=delete
if its ok the issue the t for type and enter the partition # for the win partition(make shure its the win partition and not a linux one)It will ask you for a type or "L" for list of types.Just use "b" without quotes.now do another "p"
to print again.It should be now set to Win95 fat32 for windows.If it is ok the use "w" to write to disk and exit fdisk.If you panic at anytime dont wory nothing changes untill you issue "w" use ctrl z to quit at anytime without changing anything.Now reboot with a windows disk and format the new partition.Reboot and start installing windows.
P.S. make shure you have a WORKING
boot disk for linux as win will wipe your MBR if you have lilo installed there.
