    Just remove it with the partition manager in the windows xp installation program. (It will probably report the linux partition as "unknown partition type"... bastards!)

    Yeah, but how do I get there? My XP CD won't auto-boot from restart.

    Don't you just have to set your boot sequence right in the BIOS?

    But doesn't that mean that something's wrong with your XP CD? Try disconnecting the hard drive from the IDE bus and see what it says.

    Btw., that picture you have in your signature seems to point at some hockey team or something, but the picture looks a lot like son-goku from dragonball? What exactly is the connection?
