    help required to change Master Boot Record ??????

    is there any way i can reset my Master Boot Record.
    currently i have Linux 8.0, Win 2K and win 98 installed on my system.
    the grub loader is in linux. it has the default option to boot in windows and then the windows boot record has the default as win 2K.
    i want to uninstall win 2K and linux both but not win98. how do i reset my boot record for this.

    What I would do is go to the dos prompt or boot your computer with the win 98 boot disk in the floppy drive and type in fdisk and delete w2k and linux partitions then type in FDISK /MBR that will fix your MBR

    Sorry heh , I was rushing a bit to finish this paper for school. But cfdisk is another disk partitioning utility like fdisk. I like cfdisk a bit better. man cfdisk for more info..
