    I have a Dell 8300 with 1.2G Ram and 30G HD. I want to change the OS from Windows XP Home to Windows Server 2003. I have started the installation and the screen is on the one showing the existing partition and unpartitoned space on the computer:

    29322 MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi [MBR]

    -: Partition1 [FAT] 31 MB < 24 MB free >
    C: Partition2 [NTFS] 29298 MB < 24985 MB free >

    Should I delete both partitions? I want the hard drive as clean as possible. I plan to try many of the services such as IIS. I will install SQL Server 2000, Visual Studio 2003 .NET. I probably will buy another hard drive (80G or more) as a second drive later on. For now, how should I partition the 30G HD?

    Thank you for any suggestion.
