How to bypass or remove GRUB?

I had Suse 9 personal on drive D under Partition Magic 5. I should have uninstalled Linux first before I resized WIN98 on C drive to take out D drive and Linux - but I didn't, hence the GRUB loader remains on boot up.

How can I remove GRUB so WIN98 boots directly?

Welcome to LQ.

Just boot with a win98 boot floppy and run:
fdisk /mbr
