Do you want to format the whole hdd and install only Windows on it?
Try booting with the Windows-cd and delete the partition in the installer, or boot into DOS and use "fdisk" then delete partitions.

But can do this during the Windows installation. It'll notice and tell you that you don't have any recognizable partitions, and you can delete the Linux ones then.
