Unhappy Help with formatting and partitions and dual boot

Hi, apologies if this should be in the software section, I wasn't sure where to post.

Anyway, My problem is I have fedora 7 and I need to set up a dual boot with WIN XP because unfortunately I can't get any of my favorite games to work and I need office 2007 for college. Ive tried to boot from the XP disk but it just seems to boot up fedora anyway. I changed to boot order and the rescue disk just does the same. I have f disk on a win98 boot disk but that won't remove Linux partitions. Basically I want to remove Linux and install XP first to set up a dual boot but in order to to this I need a totally blank hard drive and I just cant seem to work out how to do this. all I need to know is how to remove Linux partitions or a program that can do this. Any help is much appreciated, thanks

OK. If you download and burn the following to a disk, then boot with it, you can remove all partitions and start over the way you want.


Hope it helps.
