ok this may seem like a stupid question but is it at all possible to completely format a hardrive. Then install some other operating system besides windows. I have a hardrive that i want to experiment with and see what i can do any help? Thanks Again.
ok yea thats what i want to do but im not sure on how to do it and i dont have any linux software. What im trying to do is make boot disks and then format a differnet hardrive on a different computer and start from scrach im not adding like a new one or anything i just want to make a different hard drive is there any like instructions to do this beacause i hardly know what im doing but im tired of windows.
I don't have any boot disks. and the hard drive I'm going to use cant accept CDs i have no clue its most likely simpler to talk to someone on the phone to completely explain the whole thing the right way.
check out linux.org. Distrobutions-->for category, choose minimalist. and look for the small linux distros. they can fit an entire distro on 1 floppy disk. soemtimes over a few disks they can have a grpahical interface, although i havne't seen it yet.//

well i figured it out i put the Linux Slackware in the drive and started up my computer with the second hard drive hoooked up and turns out it was a bootable software Compact 2 disk set for Linux Slackware 3.5 but i think the disk that is cracked is the disk that has the X software on it so ill probobly half to find a download on google search or something thanks for the help thanks a lot.
