Hello, all a friend of mine has installed a download version of corel linux. It came on a cd from the frontcover of a pc mag. He now wants to get it off the driev and re-install DOS. He says that he has tried booting to a DOS floppy, and tried to run format, but to no avail. I know jack about unix, but I would imagine that he will have to use unix to command a format, then reinstall DOS. But what the unix command might be is a mystery to me.  Any idea's, thanks , Mal.

Ok, boot linux, type in fdisk. Delete all partions with it, and then boot with a dos boot disk. Use the dos fdisk to make partions. Then install. If you have any more questioins, post here me.

If you have any other OS on the same disk, don't delete its partitions. You will loose data if you do so. Delete only Linux partitions using the Linux fdisk.

And of course, BACKUP your DATA first.
