I had Windows 95 and Linux installed in separate partitions on my 233 MHz computers hard drive. I removed the Linux partition AND accidentally removed the boot program - making the whole computer useless! I've tried reinstalling Windows 95 but no good - the old installation is still recognized. Are there any free/cheap utilities available for me to try and reclaim lost data? How do I reformat my hard drive so that I can install Linux (or Windows) again?

Just use your boot disk and run "fdisk /mbr" and all should be well again .
