    i have two hard drives in my computer. my c partition contains windows xp, and and other hard drive, containing mandrake linux, does not even appear. my system information tells me that its on disk#1 and partition #0. i want to get rid of linux, but cannot format the drive its on as it is not listed. if anyone has any idea of what i'm talking about any help would be much appreciated. thank you.

    You can't view linux filesystems in Windows Explorer, you can format the drive in Disk Management.

    delete the "unknown" partitions, and create a new ntfs partition.
