    hi,
    i have 2 partitions. in one i have win2k and the other has linux. now i want to remove the linux os. so will this procedure be ok?
    1. boot from a bootable floppy and go to command prompt and give
    the command fdisk /mbr.
    2. give fdisk command and delete the linux partition.
    3. create a new partition from the free space got from deleting the linux
    partition.

    or should i do any thing more?
    ps:currently my first boot is set to linux.

    thank you.

    hi,
    thank you prakash. its not for me. i do use linux and i like it.

    @unvisible, if i want to use windows based applications then i will use it in windows only. why to use them in linux. linux is a different os. use its features when you are there. :) :)

    thank you.

    Everybody is entitled to his/her opinion.There is no need to make comments which would start a Flamewar.
    If you dont agree with something you can always make a valid point.

    Now back to the topic...
