Linux Setup question

Hi;

I wish to delete my version/distribution of Linux
on my PC's second hard drive. I wish to do this in order
that I may repartition this drive. I'm using PowerQuest's
PartitionMagic.

It prompts me for a volume label before deletion. It displays to me an "unknown volume label".

I cannot recall how to determine the Linux partition label.

How do I determine the volume label?

Just type in "unknown volume label" or whatever Partition Magic shows for label name. This is just a safeguard so you realize what partition you are deleting.

Hey Thanks!

This is a case where something is so obvious so as to be
obscure!

Now, all I need to do is find a distribution of Linux
which is easy to install. Red Had won't work, I guess.
