hey everyone out there, i have a little problem with linux my cousin just gave me his laptop which he wont be using for a while now (army stuff, heh) and it comes with linux mandrake and windows xp installed on it. i do not wish to learn to use linux frankly and i want to get rid of it but here's the catch: it has few things available, only the cds that come with it for system restore and no more (its an hp).
i wanna get rid of linux asap :P so any help is appreciated! if i uh missed some info you might need (most probably i did) ask and ill answer. thanks everyone.
In this case you don't need anything ... from a XP
boot disk prompt first do fdisk /mbr, make sure XP is
the active partition. Boot XP, and then use the
volume manager that lives in control panel delete
the Linux-partition, and make it a NTFS drive for
your data and such ...
