    Removing partitions on install


    OK....maybe a silly question but...

    I have a hard drive that currently has 3 partitions on it. 2 windows and 1 linux. I was wanting to wipe out the hard drive and just install linux on it.
    If I were to boot the drive with a linux cd, is it possible to delete the partitions and just install linux? Or do I need some type of partitioning tool first?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, you can use the install CD to take over the whole drive and install Linux on it.
