Just kidding, any linux install disk (RedHat/SuSE/even Mandrake I think) will let you nuke those partitions and have leave a blank disk for some Microsoft OS to mutiliate. :)

Yes. He can pick up a Mandrake 8.1, ($29.95 for the three CD set) slap the #1 CD into his computer, answer a couple of quick questions, and he will be at their excellent disk partioning and formatting program. With it, he can quickly repartion/reformat the drive, and then cease the Mandrake install. Then, while MS is installing he can look over the Mandrake manual, and come to wonder why in the h*ll any sane person would use MS. He can then abort the MS installation, and install a real operating system instead.
