    I installed Linux on my old computer the other day to see how it works, and i just cant figure it out. I think its a good thing but not for me. I want to delete and have been searching all over the web for info on how to do this and cant find anything that don't involve the floppy drive. My computer doesn't have a floppy it just has a CD ROM drive thats it. I have the Linux disk i installed which is the red hat version and i have a windows disk but don't know where to go from there what would be the easiest way to do this? Any help would be gratefully appreciated thanks.
