I have Just installed Redhat 8 onto a drive. I have no idea how to use it and I want to uninstall it and return to windows. I installed it over an existing winME but I chose full patition so I believe the old patitions are destroyed. I chose not to have multiple platforms also. How do I repatition the drive to fat32 so that I can reinstall WinME? HELP ME PLEASE!!!

I Agree! I have been messing around with it and I really do enjoy it's power. The only problem I am really having is with networking. I have four computers on my network, this is the only one with RedHat. I'm totally new to this OS. I need to access my other computers through this one. I know I will figure it out but I was kinda hoping it wouldn't take so long. I work all day and don't have much time to Learn.But I know it has the power I have been looking for, just don't have the time.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
fat32 is a filesystem type not a partition type really.
but you can open linux's fdisk,
from a terminal
and change the partition type with the command
then the type you wish to change it to which is probably
then write and exit
linux will continue to work in this condition, and
you can even leave it like that, but you can boot
with whatever windows cdrom you wish, and
it will tell you the drive is not formatted.
you'll know what to do from there.
same here, i have windows and am new to Linux red hat 8, i dont no much, but i finally figured out how to set up the firewall in the terminal (feels proud casue he used a linux term) and now b/c of exams i dont have much time to use/play with it but this weekend...
