    If you want to remove GRUB bootup your XP install disk and go to the recovory console by pressing 'R'. Here type
    Code:
    fixmbr
    and now you have got rid of grub.

    What is the exact problems your having with rpms?

    Does this work with Win 98 too? Do I have fixmbr in Win 98 install CD too?

    No, with the win 98 you have to do
    Code:
    fdisk /mbr
    if i recall correctly

    It's a BASh thing that I use in jest here, since if I did
    Code:
    POSTCOUNT=0
    export POSTCOUNT
    that wound give me the POSTCOUNT variable(?), and then each time one wound put
    Code:
    POSTCOUNT=$&#40;&#40;POSTCOUNT+1&#41;&#41;
    it wound add 1 to POSTCOUNT, so say if I do that five times and then
    Code:
    echo $POSTCOUNT
    5
    5 is the number of times POSTCOUNT=$((POSTCOUNT+1)) has run, and it's added 1 to the $POSTCOUNT.

    THough the code on the in my sig does nothing, it just says that I add one post to my postcount each post I do.

    install rpms by using:
    Code:
    rpm -iv something.rpm
    i = install
    v = verbose i.e. print loads of info if required (usually progress messages)

    if you want to learn more about rpms, enter into a terminal:
    Code:
    man rpm
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
