Ok, open disk management, and see if it has it there. Or, use Partiton Magic, as it has a nicer user interface.

Disk management is in control panel > admin tools. But like i said above, im not 100% sure if ya will be to do it from there. Also if ya dual booting with linux, then ya may have some boot problems after ya remove it. But this can be fixed with the FIXBOOT command from RC

I must be blind because there isn't Admin Tools under the control panel. Keep in mind I am running Windows ME.

Got your PM, can't reply for another 5 minutes.

Ok, disk management it is. But you may be best waiting until you have the XP disc, because like Raffaz said, it can mess with the boot.ini files.

Haha, oh yeah, I have been thinking XP. Just wait till you have that disc mate, and delete the partitions from there. Seems easiest thing to do.

Ive only got limited experience of Linux, but im pretty sure ya dont use boot.ini for it. Linux installs its boot loader over that to either GRUB or LILO mate
