All you need is a floppy that will boot (DOS 6.22, Windows 9x, NT, etc.) and any flavor of fdisk. Windows 9X boot floppies are easier to make than NT boot floppies (if you need an NT boot floppy, come back and Iíll tell you how). If you have a Windows 9X machine, make a boot floppy with the Windows Explorer (right click the floppy drive, Format, copy the systems files check box checked). Then copy fdisk.exe from C:\windows\command\ to the floppy. Boot to the floppy on the NT computer and use fdisk to remove the partition. You may also want to use A:\>fdisk /mbr to restore the manufacture's boot record on the hard disk boot track. Larry
