Remove Fedora/Grub from Dual Boot System


Hi, what steps should I take in order to transform my system from a dual boot Fedora/WinXP system to a single boot Windows XP system. I obviously don't want to use Grub loader without Fedora too. I have them on two separate HDD's and need the extra space on the Fedora drive for Windows XP. Thank you much!

Task B1 or B2 (depending on what tool you have got) of my last link in the signature refers.

Just for searching's sake, I used a Windows 98 boot disk w/fdisk.exe and then booted off a floppy and ran the command: fdisk /mbr. Then I deleted that (linux) partition and reformatted to NTFS. Worked like a charm. Thanks again.
