unistalling windows


I have adual boot RH7.2 / win98 and I want to get rid of
the windows partition. How should I go about it?

I am thinking of installing Debian in the partition now
wasted on Windows ( I really like the Debian package system).
Is it possible to do it and have the two distros talk to each other?
For example could I run a program installed in the RH partition
from the Debian partition and vice versa?

thnx for any help

simple to delete windows. use "fdisk /dev/hdn" where "n" is your IDE drive, then type "p" to type partition table, find which windows is on, the "d" to delete it. save your changes and quit. use "m" for fdisk help.

And yes, they'll talk to each other very nicely.
