From the DOS disk (you need the fdisk.exe utility though...dunno if it comes in all windows distros)
For a fdisk version, in case you dont have, or just google for it
After you get windows back in the MBR, then use any parition utility like partition magic to delete the Linux partition (shame on you ), or if you have a fast internet connection, download Hirens Boot CD, its like 30 Mb, and it contains -among a lot of useful stuff- a version of fdisk, and many partition managers, and its an ISO you can burn into a CD, very handy in situations like this
cheers and good luck mate

I like www.bootdisk.com myself. You can get a Win98 boot disk.
If the DOS bootdisk you created was done with XP, IMO it is worthless.
When you get the bootdisk, the command you will ned is
fdisk /mbrHow to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"
