How to remove NeTraverse from grub.conf?


I made the mistake of installing NeTraverse and now I cannot get it off my box. How do you uninstall NeTraverse? My grub.conf is configured as follows:

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi apm=off
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img

title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
# added by NeTraverse - DO NOT REMOVE THIS LINE, it's used for uninstall
title Win4Lin
root (hd1,0)
kernel /win4lin ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi apm=off
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img

# end added by NeTraverse - DO NOT REMOVE THIS LINE, it's used for uninstall

How can I get this off without harming my current configuration?
Any help would be appreciated.

Andrew

Fisrt of all back your grub.conf up and make sure you always have some kind of bootable disk around (CD/Floppy) that works
I've been in sticky situations with disks that once worked but now have bad sectors. Try knoppix for that purpose.
After it's backed up, remove :

Should be out of your gnome menu. Should preety much get rid of it. Never used Win4Lin, but I'd look into that uninstaller they speak about. Check their website.

Try wine if you want to run windows programs under linux:
