Hello all,

I run a dual boot system with Windows XP and Mandrake 9.0. I have two harddrives. I made an 8 gig partition from the second one for Linux to run on. I installed the LILO bootloader. Mandrake 9.0 doesn't load properly so I'd like to get rid of it. What it does is it boots to a black screen with the words 'Localhost Login: " and Im unable to type a thing or do anything.

Ive forgotten how to free up a partition, I installed Mandrake quite awhile ago. If someone could give me a little guidance it woud be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
