    In a few machines, Windows Installation CDs do not work properly after Linux installation. Download SuperGRUB CD ( look for version 0.9598 ) and boot up from it. Select Fix Windows Boot Loader option. It will remove GRUB and Windows Installation CD will work after that. You can user SuperGRUB CD or Fedora Installation CD to re-install GRUB later on.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
