Unistall Mandrake, keep the partitions...
I installed Mandrake a few days ago, and after messing with it a little, i came to the conclusion that it had served it's purpose (partition without using YaST or a third party program so i could install SuSE). Well, so i put in the SuSE boot disk, started the FTP installation, and YaST comes up with my partitioning. it was gonna format /hda7 (w/ reiser) and /hda6 (swap partition). That seemed ok. But when i went to configure GRUB, i was going to put windows as default, but it didnt even give show windows as a selection. I think the selections were : Linux (default), memtest, floppy, and failsafe. i assume this has something to do with mandrake being installed because my windows partition is fine, im in windows now. so, my question is, how would i uninstall mandrake 9.1 download edition without losing the partitions? thanks
 could i do something like go to Disk Management in the control panel and Hightlight the partition with Mandrake on and run a format? [/edit]
\"Look, Doc, I spent last Tuesday watching fibers on my carpet. And the whole time I was watching my carpet, I was worrying that I, I might vomit. And the whole time, I was thinking, \"I\'m a grown man. I should know what goes on my head.\" And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller
