to get rid of LILO or GRUB when you boot up your computer (the options you can select to boot up into - linux, windows, failsafe, etc) just boot up with the XP cd, and select rescue. I don't remember what else it asks, but i do know it asks some weird stupid question like "do you want to rescue a previous installation of windows?". Say yes, and you'll want to have a command line (*laughs*) so you can type "fixmbr" or something similar. Type that in and it'll warn you that you'll be overriding the master boot record and data might get corrupted, etc etc. Just say yes and it's over in a second. reboot and it should automatically load windows. Now you still have a few partitions on your drive with linux on them, but windows cannot access them without third party software. Thus, I would recommend Partition Magic or some bootable cd that would do it for you. All you need to do is erase the linux (ext2 or ext3) partitions and the linux swap. You'll end up with "unallocated space" which you can either make into another "drive" on your system (D:\ or E:\ or whatever), or merge with another one (partition magic does this nicely).
