Hi well I installed Red Hat 9. But I think that I am just not ready for linux yet... so I would like to know hot to partition my hard drive back to FAT32. I tried through DOS using FDISK but that programm anly makes a partition which is 36mb and i nedd at least 200... Well now I would like to know is there a program like Partition magic for linux and where i could get it and how can i install it... cause linux is realy complicated for me who used Windooooze for 8 years now Thanks for your help , I wil be waiting for replies.

are you having a problem removing your linux partitions? log into redhat as root, run cfdisk, delete your partitions, and then write. then put your win98 cd in the cdrom and reboot. it ought to take care of everything automatically from there (partitioning and formatting), no?
