Unable to boot up Red Hat 7.1 0r 7.2

Can I completely uninstall (remove) Red Hat 7.2 from my hard drive Partition C (boot from drive A) without disturbing Partition A (microsoft 98se) and Partition B (spare)? Partitioning was by System Commander 2000. The Red Hat Manuals do not cover this problem in Appendix C or Chapter 13 for Red Hat 7.1. I've got my upgraded distro so screwed up by fooling around with "root" that I cannot get a clean boot with my installation boot disk. I have tried to boot up with the installation disk and CD #1 & #2 of Redhat 7.1 and 7.2 - no results. I get "repair fly system" use Control D or root password - with no results. I intend to go back to Red Hat if I can get this straighted out - and lose my root password!. Thanks Bill R

Try CD 1 and select something to do with "install". Try typing text at the prompt.
