It depends on how you installed it... if it is a virtual partition inside the FAT32 drive *remember 2k can use it too...* then delete the root directory. If it is a partition; use the Logical Disk Utilty in the COmputer mamgement MMC *right click my computer -> manage*

To get rid of LILO: Run up the recovery console *The original CD should have it as part of the auto CD boot section of the disk* and use FIXBOOT amd FIXMBR. That will ensure that there is no nasties left over.

Then for that free space... create the volume and mount it under the other drive using a mapping *Change Drive letter or Path* You can have both too: its a handy feature...

Anywho hope it helps; if not email me; I could have an answer...

Delete the Linux partition, and recreate using W2K. You may have to reset the MBR, if it prompts you Linux/Win2K while booting, you'll have to reset your mbr.

'fdisk /mbr' should do the trick
