Format Hard drive

Hello,
I have a desktop here with windows 98 and 2000 pro installed on one partition (C:Drive). Is there any way I can delete these two operating systems and just reinstall a fresh win 98SE?
Thanks Kevin

Dear kevinb4940,
You may boot the system with Win98 Boot disks. You can download it from www.bootdisks.com and use FDISK and delete the all the partitions.
Once all the partitions gets deleted. create a new partition and install Win98 on it.

Cheers!

You also need to format the partition after recreating it using FDISK command.
