Back to Windows.
Well, now that I have Mepis running like a dream on my newer PC I'm going to put Windows on my older system that had Fedora. Problem is Windows keeps locking up during install. If I'm not mistaken, I have to do something with the MBR before I can install windows but I don't remember what it is. Help me out peops...thanks.

Boot the CD all the way up. Select R for repair. Select the Windows installation you wish to repair. Give the Admin password when asked. At the prompt, type: FIXMBR answer the prompt (say yes), then type exit. Voila. MBR repaired.Registered Linux user #384279

You shouldn't have to touch your mbr before installing Windows; it overwrites the mbr during install. You have some other problem.
Usually in my experience, when a Windows install locks up for no reason it is a memory issue. Try running memtest and see what comes up.There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
