Exclamation Remove Windows NTFS fully


I had WinXP on this machine and then I installed Linux. One of the drives on Windows Partition is NTFS. Now I want to give all space to Linux and remove Windows XP from this machine. What should I do? I have the backup of all my data for Windows. So, I do not mind if the data is lost. Please help.

u may delete partions and create new partions with "fdisk" command. but be careful when u work with fdisk. u can delete all of disk. after that format new created partion with one of mkfs.ext3 mkfs.ext2 mkfs.vfat mkfs.reiserfs . its up to u to choose one of fs.
type the following to see partitions table of disk.
fdisk -l
