Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Ubuntu 11.04, that alternative OS from Washington State
Assuming that you can boot to the CD, choose "Try Ubuntu without making any changes to your system" at the boot menu. Once you're in the live environment, it's in the Administration menu as "Partition Editor".
OK ! I am deleting the partition from Fedora core 6 os, which is a
linux distro. Now as far as fdisk is concerned here is the output of this command - bash: fdisk: command not found
And for gparted , if anyone can tell me how to use gparted , using fedora core 6 os.
OK! i have windows set up , which goes to a blank screen just after booting from the CD! so i can't do this.
And the bottom line is that i want to uninstall fedora core 6 only to install windows xp, which i'm not able to do why i just wrote. And i think the only reason why win xp would hang is due to fedora core 6 on the harddisk. So i want to get rid of this fedora core 6 which is coming in my way of installing windows xp. For this i've to delete fedora core 6 somehow(for which i cannot use xp installer cd, naturally)
Now can u please help with this!
I've tried this but of no gain. As after reaching there it also goes ahead with installation of ubuntu which i don't want. All i want is to make use of gparted using ubuntu live cd, for my help (for creating partitions for win etc.)
