    I have installed windows xp and linux redhat on mylaptop and I am using
    grub.
    I am running out of space in my windows partition so I want to format the
    linux partition with window xp.

    Can i just format the partition? What happens on the next reboot? I dont
    want to lose my windows xp ?

    thanks
