this will clear everything...
That's a deadly tool, Dai - wouldn't want that in the hands of a novice user. It even gave me a fright!

John: Get hold of Partition Magic (my favourite) or Google for a disk partitioning utility. Partition Magic will "see" and be able to merge the hidden partition for you (and give you full access to the entire drive again).

Kill disk, System Commander, Partition Magic... and even the Windows 98 System/Boot floppy will delete the partion once you click Non-DOS or Non-FAT
Delete all partitions, reboot, create new partition, reboot. Format. Reboot, then treat as normal with your existing discs.
