Installed LINUX Correll OS Deluxe on a Thinkpad 365XD that has Windows 95. We experienced some problems and wanted to remove the LINUX and reinstall. Long story short the entire hard drive was formatted so that Windows 95 would be reinstalled, on boot up LINUX selection window comes up is still there, DOS was reinstalled didn't help.  Is there a special format command that will remove LINUX?

You will need to remove the ext2 partition. DOS FDISK won't work, look for a utility on the Corel Linux Cd called Diskdruid or fdisk <-- NOT DOS fdisk. Remove the partition and then reboot with a bootable dos floppy. You can now create the FAT partitions with dos fdisk, and after that also run fdisk /mbr to get rid of the Linux boot loader.
If you can't find any partitioning tools on the linux cd, try to start the Linux install again, normally during install ( you might have to select custom setup) you get the option to create custom partitions. Just delete all the Linux partitions at this time and reboot. You could also use partition magic ( windows/dos program) if you have access to it.
