    What a Bad Luck!.
    I tried changing the filesystem to FAT32,NTFS using GPART LiveCD.
    The time taken for GPART to format the Linux HD was surprisingly fast.(perhaps suspiciously fast!)
    Still Windows refuses to see it.
    One hard disk was recognized by BIOS as ST380817AS(called SATA).Another as something like ST380817A(I don't remember exactly.But didn't end with S)
    Former is 80GB Win XP HardDisk and Latter is 20GB Linux Harddisk.
    Has it got anything to do with this?
    How can I format the Linux Completely?(After formating with GPART still GRUB is Loaded if I tried to boot with the Linux HD).
    Please help guys( )

    Try this.

    1. Make the the 20G as your primary HDD
    2. Dont install the the other HDD (install only the 20G)
    3. boot your PC from CD ROM
    -Using Ultimate boot disk and use the HDD tools to format your HDD
    -Using your xp installation disk can do the job also (either you instal XP or just format it)

    No programming language is perfect. There is not even a single best language; there are only languages well suited or perhaps poorly suited for particular purposes.
