i have inherited a 120GB hard disk which has 6 partitions(why?!!)
i want to install knoppix 3.6 or 3.7
i have been trying to partition the hard disk by using qtparted on knoppix live cd
however i get various problems such as 'disk is already mounted' which it is not and even umount has no effect (can not even mount the partitions)
so i can not even delete the partition
is there a command line way of frying the whole dist to 1s and 0s so i can do a clean install??
cheers in advanced
