    hello JakeS
    It is because the LILO is still iin Master Boot record loaded... reload the mandriva with minimal installation and 'umount lilo' and restart.... or if you have a windows startup floppy you can use the fdisk command to clear the mbr..

    If you want just the regular XP boot screen and want to remove the Linux bootloader completely, boot with your XP install CD and go to the "Recovery Console" when it prompts you. Then type FIXMBR. This will wipe the Master Boot Record and restore the XP default.
