Previous Linux partitions can be a bear to deal with and completely get
rid of.

I have used a utility called AEFDISK in the past. It is a command line
utility now up to version 2.2. You can get it as shareware thru

Put it on a Win98 boot disk and use the /DELALL command to completely
and totally wipe a hard drive. It removes all kinds of partitions,
Linux, NTFS, FAT16, FAT32, you name it.

It's $30 to register which gets *all* of the commands operational.
