partition and format hardisk


I am currently making a box up out of bits and I intend to use two hard disks that have had previous debian installation on. I want to delete the partition on the disks before I do a new install, what the best way to do it???

The debian installer should present a partitioning opportunity for you. You can just delete them there. Alternatively, use a LiveCD and use (c)fdisk.
