    Uninstall mandrake.

    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.

    Hi cider,

    Is that true? or do you mean "drive" rather than "partition"

    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.
