I need more diskspace on my hard drive.

At present it is split between Win 3.1 and (slackware) Linux.

I boot with LILO

How do I remove linux, and repartion my disk as to get all space available again?  (Of course without losing my win3.1 data.)

(PS I intend to get a separate drive shortly for linux)

Thanks

Hi!
We can use Dos's FDISK to delete the partition of Linux native and Linux Swap partition into a new disk drive. But we can not make the free space from the partition deleted into the win3.1 driver.
We just can create a new drive from the free space of partitions we have deleted, because we can not change the partition which have already assign as a drive.
If you want to delete the Linux and create a new drive .....
1. Boot from MS-Dos
2. Type FDISK { FDISK }
3. Delete the partition which show in FDISK call non-dos partition.
4. Create the new partition by option 1 as extended partition
5. Reboot the system
6. Format the drive you have created { format [drive-id:] /u/c }
(make sure that drive do not contain any data, the drive you need to format is the one you type DIR and it will give you an error message)
7. The drive is ready for you to use.

Hope it helps.
