Now I lost access to Linux, and I can only boot to WinXP from GRUB. So, I need to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, but the reinstallation method provided by Dell (my computer manufacturer) doesn't work on the machine. Where can I find help for formatting screwed-up hard drive and reinstalling Windows? > > Thanks for your help, in advance. > > --peter Well I have several things to say: 1. If Windows works all you have to do is to install Linux. At at this point I would install Fedora Core 4 rather that RH 9, but the choice is yours. 2. The installation of any Linux will allow you to format the partition that will hold the Linux. 3. During the installation of Windows you can format the partition for Windows as part of the installation. 4. I don't see what Dell has to do with it. ------------------------------------------- Aaron Konstam Computer Science Trinity University telephone: (210)-999-7484 -- Shrike-list mailing list Shrike-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/shrike-list
