Guys this is going to be straight forward ready?? GO!!
Ok so i install ubuntu and i want to get rid of it without formatting the drive. It is partitioned on a "terabyte" drive. The reason i want to do this is so i can install transbuntu. Any help??

Transbuntu is still in its infancy. It looks good but it's still version 1. My suggestion would be to run a Virtual Machine until you want to commit.

If you really want to do it though, the easiest way is to load up the Transbuntu boot disk and select the Ubuntu partition to overwrite it.

Also, 5 minute bumps?

okay... uhm...

I guess from some type of live media or installation media call

Code:
Code:
# mkfs.<fstype> /dev/<partition>
where:
<fstype> is the type of the filesystem, such as ext2, msdos, xfs, etc
<partition> is the hard drive partition such as sda0 or hda1 etc

But I'm just a little curious why you seek to avoid simply re-formatting the partition.

You can re-format just that partition of the hard drive without re-formatting the rest of it, and most installers cater to someone wanting to do customer partitioning.

And like TFB mentioned. A 5 minute bump is a little overkill. Give it a day or so.
