yeah, just use cfdisk to kill the partitions you want to free, then make a new windows partition there...

then use the windows installer to format the windows partition...

If you havnt done so already make a boot disk for your lfs system.. And youll need to reinstall your boot manager after windows is installed.

Moved: Has nothing to do with LFS directly, more suitable in Newbie.
