Download an ISO disk of knoppix (takes about an hour on cable modem), burn it to a CD, boot up with it, and you should be in the knoppix OS (it's really nice ). Then run the formatting utilities in that.

It's a little bit more than you really need as you could just download a floppy bootable copy of cfdisk and do it there; i just think its useful to have a copy of knoppix around at all times

traffic in the skyy
