1- This is the wrong forum for questions B)


2- IIRC you can change/replace password by pressing F1 during boot, then type passwd, do what is needed. I've never done this myself.


3- Remove Linux: On boot selection choose fb, if you can now login do: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hdx

where hdx is whatever partition(s) Linux was installed onto. Use fdisk, then p to see what partitions you have. q to quit fdisk.


4- A floppy with tomsrtbt on it will work if you cant't do the above. It has fdisk and dd on it, and lots other stuff.


Caution: all the above is from memory, which is not good, so use caution :deal:
