    Can someone help me decide on the best way to wipe my hdd and reload it with basically the same programs, etc.

    I have a 15GB hdd that I had partitioned and put Linux on the other partition, but since I had a lot of problems I removed the partition. Or at least I thought I had.

    Now, I get some warnings from scandisk about the last segment of the disk, or something, so I just want to start over by formatting the hdd and reloading my programs, etc.

    My question is, "How can I do this without having to go through the re-installation of Win98se and all the other programs individually. Or, is that even possible?"

    Norton Ghost or some other drive image software to image the partition . Then format the entire drive and delete the partitions and reload your partition image.
