How can I remove FC and replace with Win2000

I have a computer with only FC installed and my boss wants it taken off. How can I remove the linux partitions.

I love FC, but my boss thinks it's too complicated

Too difficult? Bleh.

Install Cobind Desktop or something first. See if his mind changes.

If not, just pop in Win2k install discs and start your computer back up.

You have an option in the Win2K setup to format partitions. Follow the instructions when you get to that point and it will format the HD to Fat32 or NTFS (you're choosing), removing all existance of Linux from your computer... sniff... sniff...

Bosses... what do they know?
