    MY Maxtor 80GB hard drive is partitioned C drive 30Gb W98Se FAT32 & F drive W2K 50Gb NTFS. Is it possible to format the drive back to just 1 partition running W2K NTFS?

    I would be grateful for any advice.

    Do you want to keep anything on the drive? If not its really easy. Just boot from the Windows 2000 and it shoudl give you options to delete the existing partitions.
