Red face Mandrake 9.0 + Windows 2000


Hi, everyone,

I have been using different Operating Systems and have never had any trouble fooling them around before Mandrake 9.0 was introduced to me. I installed Mandrake 9.0 and it seemed to coexist with Windows with no problems. One day I delete the Mandrake partition using partition magic 8 just wanted to see how windows 2000 would react, it actually worked pretty smoothly. After I reboot my computer, I found that the Mandrake startup screen is still there with broken links. Does anyone know how to remove the boot-up screen created by Mandrake? Any help will be fully appreciated.

Would this cause the other partitions I have inaccessible? In windows 2000 "FIXMBR" could damage the partition table. Is it right?
