    Hello. I have a computer with two hard drives. On one is a broken Windows XP that ran slowly in the first place. On the other is Linux Mandrake. I could not really think of a category to put this in, so I put it here. I want to format everything and have one hard drive with Windows ME, and the other just for other music, documents, and stuff. Is there anyway I can do this?

    Thank you,

    Sure, just use a windows boot disk, format both partions, and then install WinME on your c: drive.

    You might want to fdisk first. The linux uses a
    different system so whichever harddrive had it
    needs to be first deleted in fdisk and then
    make a primary partition. If you need help with
    this just post back.
