Removing A Linux Distro (Slightly Newbish Question)
Yeah, I basically want to delete a linux partition, but I'm unsure how to go about it.
Before you all gasp (As I know you will!) I'm not getting rid of Linux as a whole, the situation stands like this:
I'm using a laptop running Windows XP
I successfully created a disk partition
On it I installed Fedora 8
From the grub bootloader, I was able to dual boot Fedora 8 and Windows XP as I saw fit.
It was going well, but to put it simply I wasn't happy with Fedora (Alot of complications regarding my wireless card, I have nothing against the distro itself)
So basically I decided to switch my distro, I gave Backtrack 3 a try and loved it as it was perfectly compatable with my wireless card right away (PS don't try and change my mind, I'm using BT3 damnit!)
But yeah, now I want to replace Fedora 8 with Backtrack 3, same dual boot options and disk sizes, just different distro. (I know BT3 is a live CD, but I'm installing it)
A few things to consider is that Fedora 8 used grub and I heard that Backtrack 3 uses LILO, also bear in mind that BT3 is based on Slax (Which is based on slackware) I believe.
So yeah, it's kind of a strange question and probably requires some knowledge of BT3. I just know that in the graphical installer for Fedora 8, there was an option to install over existing linux distros (Obviously there was nothing there at the time) I wondered if BT3 has this option.
I was thinking of deleting the entire partition Fedora is on and then creating a new, fresh one. But maybe this is too long winded and there is a quicker/simpler way.
Thanks in advance.
