Segmentation Fault


When I try to install Slackware on my system, it says while formatting the HDA that there is a segmentation fault and it automatically restarts. What is this about? I haven't been able to use Linux neither Windows because of the same error but the only difference is that in Windows, it says Page_Fault or something like that. I did a complete restore to my PC but nothing happened. I also want to know how to desinstall Lilo from the MBR because I no longer have Linux (I will install it after I fix this problem.)

boot insto dos from a floppy and from command line, 'fdisk /MBR'.
if you dont have a bootable floppy,get windows install cd.
boot from it to Rescue mode by pressing R(or F5,i think) button.from there,try 'fixmbr <device_name>'.
device_name:The device (drive) on which you want to write a new master boot record. The name can be obtained from the output of the map command. An example of a device name is:
\Device\HardDisk0.
