    is your grub on the "mbr"? if so then format the hard drive won't delete grub

    After your Windows install you can always boot from the Mandrake cd (pressing F1 and then typing "rescue" and hitting Enter will get you to a recovery utility) and restore your bootloader. You will probably have to modify grub or lilo (whichever you're using - Mandrake uses lilo by default) to include Windows, but that is very easy to do.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    The format wouldn't hurt his bootloader, but a Windows install would.
