I decided to dual-boot with XP and mandrake. However Mandrake isnt doing it for me so I want to uninstall it. It is on the same patition as my windows one. How do I uninstall it without formatting again.
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

Is that true? or do you mean "drive" rather than "partition"
It is on the same patition as my windows one.
You could try booting from the Windows CD and running fdisk /mbr That should restore the Windows master boot record and get rid of LILO. Then just delete the stuff you don't want.
Operating systems don't come with an uninstall utility, and you should not load Windows and Linux on the same partition.
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
