uninstalling linux (blush)

I'm trying to remove my linux partition from my drive using fdisk (dos) but to no avail! I've tried ALL the options -- remove extended partition, delete Non-DOS partition, etc etc. BUT IT DON'T WORK! I know I've done this before, but I have a memory span of a goldfish -- I can't remember! What are my options? (ps: i don't have my rh-linux cd's anymore)

Why don´t you use linux fdisk... (It will be a suicide, but removing linux is already a crime ;-). Just login as root and run "fdisk". Option "m" will show you the help and option "p" will show you your actual partition layout...

Good Luck

Ok... get a boot floppy and rescue diskette (on redhat ftp site), boot from them and use their fdisk...

... tried that (boot from rescue disk) and ran expert mode, rescue, etc etc. no luck there (i couldn't run fdisk at all with rescue).
but fear not. linux has already been wiped clean from my drive (thanks to partition magic). now all i have to decide which o/s to put into my system -- NT or win98 (which is worse????).
thanks anyway =)

you can also do one more thing....that is to do a low-level formattung of your hard disk from the bios.
