Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

#1.Just go thru the RH9 setup process by booting the pc with CD#1.
#2.when the setup reaches the "select partition-> to install" select the
linux partitions possibly ext2/ext & swap partitions and delete.
naveentpr explained already how to remove the Linux partitions easily. Hopefully you will be able to reclaim the newly created "empty unpartitioned space" from within Windows 98. But there may be another issue: You may be using a Linux bootmanager which offers you to boot either Linux or Windows. If you installed the bootmanager in the MBR (and not on of the Linux partitions) you may want to delete this MBR as well.
I think the easiest way to do this, is to boot into Windows and type from a command prompt:
C:\ > sys C:
This will reinstall the DOS bootloader onto both the MBR and the C: drive.
yes jisse is given u easy and proper way here i wants to add some thing
if still u could not remove linux for your pc can use partition Magic to delete any partition, format and then recreat or resize any current partition.
then just boot from any win98 boot disk or boot able cd aftre boot
sys c: at command prompt.
If you installed linux boot loader in first sector of linux partiton, and loading linux form micrsoft loader .
Then just remove linux partition under disk managment of windows 2000 and then recreat and format as u requier fat32 or NTFS,
and for linux boot loader entry in boot ini, edit boot.ini file and remove linux entry. (the boot ini file u can find in your main win2k partition ro where is MBR, by default it will be readonly and hidden, first u will have to change its attributes)
i use grub boot loader as primary boot loader(MBR),second one is nt boot loader.
i select DOS to boot win2000 !
my partition table==> 1. primary 20GB NTFS --W2K Installed
2. primary 10GB ext3 --RH9 Installed + swap
there is a nice piece of software called partitionmagic, boot to windows and just delete the linux partition and merge to fat32. Worked for me. partition magic will cost a little, but if your wallet is tied, you can always find it on kazaa
