help with deleting partitions please...


Please help....I am new to linux and going to school for computer science. I don't know a whole lot about computers, but am learning.

I installed Linux Red Hat on my computer and when it asked me if I wanted to delete partitions, I clicked "delete ALL partitions" thinking that if things didn't work out, I could later just put in the Windows install disk and it would automatically install.....apparently a big mistake...

now, after finding that I need to learn a lot more about Linux before I use it, I am finding it difficult to delete from my system.....

So, simply put, I need a simple, step by step on how to make delete linux and install windows...

I have no other partitions other than the ones I am running Linux on.....

How can I do this??? Please help!!!
