Can't get rid of GRUB


So I ran FDISK and made an entirely new partitioning setup for my laptops hard drive.

a 5 gig and 15 gig partition exist now.

Problem is when i go to install win2k again, on reboot I get a grub command prompt. I read that grub installs to the MBR, but I can't find out how to get rid of that so I can complete the 2k install and then do a Suse 9.1 install.

Any help?
