Uninstalling


Hi, i'm running red hat 8.0 and i would like to know how to uninstall linux. I've looked at a few guides on uninstalling but i have very limited know how about Unix. I know alot of people are moaning because i'm getting rid of linux but it's just not for me. Anyway if someone could help me it would be much appreciated. thanks

I'll be nice unlike the person above... All you have to do is boot to your windows boot disk, go into fdisk and delete all the partitions, reboot back into the boot disk and then type 'fdisk /mbr' which clears the master boot record, then reboot. Now you can install windows.
