Windows installation cant see the whole hard drive after Fedora Core
 
I've recently reformatted a hard-drive that had Fedora Core 3 on it. Now when I try to install Windows 2000, the installation only sees the portion of the hard-drive that Fedora didn't touch. I've tried rebuilding the MBR but still have the problem. What else has to be done?? Can anyone help??

You need to either boot off a linux live CD or a Windows boot floppy, anything that has a version of fdisk will do. Then you'll need to delete the partition that Fedora created and then Windows will be able to see all the space. Actually, the Windows 2000 installer should be able to delete the partition, when selecting which partition to install onto, there should be a list thing. Select the unknown one and press D. That's a random guess but it should work.
