Default Need to delete a partition.

Ok,
I need help on deleting my partition that my linux runs on, I don't use it enough for me to let it take up 50gbs of my harddrive. So can somebody please direct me to a guide, program, anything that will help me out.
Thanks.


Chris

Stick in your windows cd, it will detect the hard drives, and it have a format/partition/delete menu you can use. Just delete the hard drive's partition, and pull the disk out, and reboot. If you need to partition it again, repat the process, but dont delete anything.

If you're using XP, simply go into the Control Panel, then to Performance and Maintenance, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, and go to the Disk Manager. Select your Linux partition(s, you've probably got a swap partition there too), right click and delete partition. Then reformat the free space with NTFS, FAT32 or whatever.
