Uninstall Ubuntu from the PC completely


Hi,
Thanks very much for reading my problem, REALY APPRECIATED.

I have only Ubuntu 6.06 LTS installed on my pc. previously I had Win XP AND linux on my pc(dual boot).

Question is: how can I start from scratch i.e. completely delete Ubuntu is the first step. however, I do not know how to.

Additional problem is that it asks for GRUB and I have to insert the Windows (?!?!?!) disk and it starts working again. Why does Ubuntu need XP disk is beyond me, but then again, I am a newbie

thanks a million.
(I like to experiment with Linux, but need Windows for my office work)

sysrcd-1.3.4 has utility to wipe hd with zeros, then partition and format, flagging the boot partition (the first), reboot (with BIOS enabling cdrom as first boot device) and load your distro.
