Hey guys,

I was trying to make my system dual-boot, with Win98 (which I've used forever), and Linux (which I just wanted to install). I got as far as making the two partitions, and then decided I'd rather just have two hardrives, one with Win98 and one with Linux. I currently have two partitions. C:\ has 26 GB and D:\ has 11 GB. something went wrong with the partitioning process, and I think I might have just needed to format the second partition, but I didn't want to... Yada yada, my question is this: How do I get rid of the second partition (D:\) and just have a 37GB C:\ drive again?
Thanks,
~Alker

PS sry about double post, I accidently put this in the wrong section b4... I put it in Linux but decided Win98 was a better section. :)

Try using partition magic it will get rid of your second partition and it will let you reclaim all of the space as drive c
All without losing windows 98.

Else
Format & Reload !!

You can also use Partiton Commander or Partiton Commander Pro, which works even better than Partition Magic and will allow you to install and control as many OS's as you want. Make sure you are installing them in a primary partition and you are allowed 3 of those per drive. You can find Partition Commander HERE. They also have the best OS install directions on the net, located in their support section!

Do you know of any freeware partitioning programs that would do that with a good reputation?
Thanks
