    Linux Partition to NTFS

    I am thinking of buying a server with Redhat Linux on it. However I know that the server already has RedHat Linux on it. What would I have to do to change the Red Hat partition to fat32 or NTFS for Win2k Server?

    Specs on Server:
    Dell Poweredge 2300 PIII Server
    Dual Pentium III 700Mhz Processors
    512MB of Dell Certified memory
    4 IBM SCA 36GB 10K hotswap-able harddrives currently configured on RAID 5
    PERC2/SC Ultra2 RAID adapter
    20X SCSI cdrom
    10/100 Network Card
    Firmware and bios updated to latest versions
    N00b> STFU i r teh 1337 (english: You must be mistaken, good sir or madam. I believe myself to be quite a good player. On an unrelated matter, I also apparently enjoy math.)

    So you don't want Red Hat on there any more? Just insert the Windows 2000 Server CD into the drive, set the BIOS to boot off of the CD, and boot up. During the Windows installation, you are prompted for a partition. Simply remove all of the current partitions and create a new partition to install Windows on. Should work for you.

    did you want to remove the red hat completely?

    if so, just boot up from a w2k cd, then re-format into fat32 or ntfs......

    Fortunately, there's not a lot to add about installing Red Hat 5.1 from FAT-32
    .

    if you want to change to Fat 32 u can see the overview here. or Linux Support

    or if you want change the redhat to NTFS you can see the step you may visit http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html.

    about your server, i think it will use kernel-2.4.9-34SGI_XFS_1.1.src.rpm.. you can get the information abour redhat on Dell server

    good luck
    When I lay me down to sleep, Pray the LORD my soul to keep.
    If I die before i wake, Pray the LORD my soul to take.

    NTFS partition, which as u know is the NTfilesystem works better.

    I would pick NTFS.
