Depends on what you're going to do with the partition. If you want to create a new linux partition, I would suggest using the linux boot disk. I don't know if fdisk on the win98 boot disk supports creating linux partitions.

If you want to create a windows (FAT) partition, you're better of with the win98 boot disk.

The win98 boot disk does not recognise the ext partition of Linux, so you have to use tools such as 'partition magic' to recover the fiel system, and for getting rid of the boot loader, load into win98, and go int command line mode, and type 'fdisk/mbr'.

F-disk handles linux partitions and other too. The only thing is that they (including NTFS) appears as NON-DOS in the menu.
So if you're going to delete them? Yes, you can use fdisk.
Another thing if you don't want or can't use Partition Magic is to look at www.nonags.com .
It's a heaven for freeware and there's some decent diskpartitioning programs there.
Me? I prefer to boot up with my Debian install cd and use fdisk from that one.
*is still wondering what FAT12 is*

that is fine.
but you can delete the linux partitions using linux fdisk and then boot into dos using a bootable floppy and then 'fdisk /MBR' will do.
