Delete partition created by YAST trying to install SUSE 9.2


While installing SUSE 9.2 on my hd of 160 gb that already has WINXP installed on it (I wanted to do a multiboot system) I changed my mind, I will get a second hd and install SUSE 9.2 on the second hd, the installation seems cleaner to me.
I have not installed the second hd yet but I have a problem, I quit the installation of SUSE when YAST already made the partition for SUSE; as a result my hd now shows half the size it used to heve and I do not know how to delete the partition that YAST made.
I am really new to LINUX, please help! Thank you

If you can get to the point where you creat
partitions in the install phase, you can just
select the unwanted partition and delete it.

Try starting with the install CD/DVD 1, and
choose "new install" when asked. Then,
from the "partition" section that follows
in the system configuration list, select
the unwanted partition to be deleted and
do as your heart desires

Good luck!
