Ok, I'll try to be nice.
You want to get rid of NTFS, no probs. You can do it FDISK way or DISKEDITOR way.
The FDISK way is to delete all non-dos (and other) partitions (you would see the menu, that's simple). This will remove the NTFS partition but remain trash in boot sector. You can obtain fdisk from standard Win98 boot diskette. Use another computer to create one.
The DISKEDITOR is much better - it cleans up all the trash form boot sector but complicated for novice so ...
Get Win98 boot diskette, type fdisk and delete all non-dos partitions, then reboot and start with CDROM support (you would have a comfy menu)
Then go to Windowz CD and type \win98\setup. The rest is simple

Good luck
