How do I install Linux in a blank hard disk or how I could start my computer in DOS so I can delete everything in my C: drive and then install linux?
added: It may give you an option to delete all existing partitions, check that box
I know for a fact that RadHat provides a windows utility that will allow you to set up a dual boot system using your existing windows installation as one half.
The steps are roughly: (from memory)
1) Defragment hard drive - moving all data towards the front.
2) Rewrite the partition table so that the end of the windows partition is after the data.
The utility is called FIPs...
From the redhat manual [redhat.com]
Do the other installations provide utils like this? I've not installed linux on a single windows partitioned system for so long now...
