Angry I can't get rid of GRUB!


Someone tell me how to uninstall GRUB. I've read countless responses all over the net that say change the MBR from another bootable disk or CD, but I can't even begin that because GRUB is the first thing that comes up when I restart, so I have to make my pick between Linux and DOS.

If you still have a win98 bootdisk around, place into the drive, turn the computer on. When you come at C:\ simply type "fdisk /MBR" without the quotes. That's all you have to do

Indeed, make sure that your bios is set as "device A first", because if it's set to CD-Rom or Harddrive it'll not work. If you don't have this boot disk, try looking into MS homepage or ask a friend to make you one
