delete mandrake from dual boot


I installed mandrake on my machine and created a dual boot with windows. Now I am working on setting up another machine that will only have linux so I would like to reclaim my windows machine. How do I delete mandrake and go back to just windows?

Thanks,
Eddie

Well, use third party partitioning software (PartitionMagic, etc) to reclaim linux partitions (or you can use Windows NT/2K/XP boot floppies for this porpuse), then remove a linux boot loader record from MBR (if it was installed on MBR) with infamous DOS's
fdisk /mbr
