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.
