Removing Os from the partition
 
SO i have installed Windows 2000 in one of my partitions, I don't need it now, also I can free up some SPace,;) , So when i try to delete Winnt folder, I get an error related to acgeneral.dll , So how do i remove that without formatting Partition ?

You don't delete Windows or uninstall it by deleting its folder.
You either need to use a Windows CD or use a program like Partition Magic.

Formatting is the process of removing an OS. Back up all files. Delete the partition with the Windows on it. Then join the empty space with the existing partition.

Back up as in burn all the files that you need to a DVD or CD. You can save things onto multiple discs. This is just so that you don't lose your files.
