    I assume that you mean you are just accessing a Windows partition?
    Can you clarify?

    You may just wish to boot from your Mandrake install disk, go to rescue and choose Restore Windows Bootloader.

    You can delete the specific partitions that had mandrake installed using either diskmgmt.msc (built in to Win2k and XP Pro) or some other partition software. If there are mandrake files (unlikely I think) on your windows partition then just delete them directly through windows after the uninstall.

    You may try a Linux boot floppy with fdisk on it and mark the partitions you recreate as ntfs or fat32 then when you boot into Windows, they should be picked up and you can do a full format from there.


    Damn. You seriously want to remove Mandrake?

    Damn.
