a number of ways
#1 get any stuff you want to keep off the linux partition (as an extra
exercise here you can umount your windows partitions & then cd /;rm -rf
* just to have done it at some stage:)
#2 boot to dos or win9x command prompt only.
#3 run fdisk to delete all linux (nos dos) partitions & create new
#4 reboot ; format new partitions & hey presto you've got one or more
drives for windoze.
#5 don't forget to run fdisk /mbr to kill lilo.
method 2 (requires partition magic)
run #1 & #2 above
then use partition magice to do you
deleting/creating/resizing/formatting of stuff
then go through #5 If partition magic won't do it for you.
do #1 & 2 above & use fips to do the deleting/ resizing thing, I've
never used this method so I know nothing of it's pro's & cons
