Low Level Format

Hello Paxton,

He'll need to use FDISK if he wants to remove the existing partitions and
then recreate a single partition WITHOUT low level formatting.

If he low level formats instead, it will take the partitions out. Low level
takes everything out.

Here's a tip for you though. I have had instances where DOS's FDISK wouldn't
remove a partition. I don't exactly remember all the details because it's been
a while, but it was because the partition had a name that might have included
a character that wouldn't display so I didn't know what it was, or it was some
unusual Non-DOS partition. I've found the partitioning utility that came with
OS2 Warp to be useful when FDISK sometimes wouldn't work.

Best Regards
