    hi every 1
    i have a HD of 10 GB and made 2 partitions
    i 've allocated 4.5 GB to linux (mandrake 9.1.4) and WIN ME on the other partition.
    now due to lack of space i need to uninstall linux and allocate entire 10 Gb to windows
    also the boot loder is LILO.
    how do i do it?

    Yes simply issue fdisk /mbr to remove lilo.

    Then simply delete the Partition and make a fat partition using Partition Magic or something.

    U could also use fdisk but be careful when u use it and dont end up loosing ur data.

    oh! it's simple one.
    >at the linux prompt u should logged as a root user and type the following n press Enter it simply removes a lilo boot loader.
    #lilo -u /[hdan|..hddn] n is corresponding partition no.
    reboots the machine it directly goes to windows without asking.
    >To recreate the EXT3|2 partition to fat put the linux bootable to cd drive start the same installation process give it to OK for all at the partitioning stage select "diskdruid" and select the respective partition & to format as FAT32 & give lable.U can get the Partition again.

    [this is also one of the method. Best u should try PartitionMagic 8 it is a best megician recomended by Microsoft]
