Recently I did a very bad install with Redhat Linux 7.1, and I decided I don't need it anymore so I just want it off my drive. However, I tried using FDISK and it won't delete the extended partition its on because it says there are logical dos drives. However, when I go and try to delete the logical dos drives it says they are all deleted. Then when I go back to the extended partition, it still won't delete it. Help!

mike,

that is alway the problem with FDISK.  Take a look at Ranish Partition Manager (or any 3rd partion utilities). The url is http://www.ranish.com/part/.  It is smally, powerful, and best is: FREE.

Anyway, since you had solved your own problem, next is to close/delete the Q.  Ask an EE moderator in Community Support (http://www.experts-exchange.com/commspt/) to delete the Q, or you can request for a refund, that way we get to keep to Q in PAQ, for future search.  OR you could award us the pts :), which is even better.

cheers
