While in the Fedora Core 2 rescue mode on the CD, I try to delete my fedora partitions using cfdisk. It doesn't recongize the command. Then I try running sfdisk, and there's no command to delete from there. My only other option I can think of is fdisk and I don't think that will work. Any ideas on deleting these partitions? I'd use Partition Magic but it doesn't like the way Fedora set up the partitions. Anyone have any ideas?

I would use the fdisk command. It can pretty much delete anything.

Why do you say that you don't think fdisk will work???

I've used fsdisk before and I didn't see anytime about deleting. I'm probably wrong though. So I just run fdisk /dev/hd* then run delete /dev/hd*# right?

I've never used fsdisk. So don't know that one. But with fdisk to do the following

Code:
fdisk /dev/hda

If your drive is hda. Then hit m for a list of command.

To delete you hit the d key.
