Grub removal
I have mandrake on one HD and win ME on the other. Grub was installed with mandrake for the dual-boot thingy. How do I safely remove grub so that I only boot to my windows ME disk?

Go to a DOS prompt, and type :

fdisk /mbr

There ya go! All nice and safe!

???Can you get into DOS???

Someone has told me that before. I take it you mena booting with a floppy and then doing that? Doesn;t that wipe the master boot record leaving my computer absolutly crippled?

No. It doesn't wipe the master boot record. It just replaces the grub or whatever bootloader is in the mbr and replaces it with the original boot loader program.

Right, so ....
How should I do this? Use a boot disk and then run fdisk /mbr or do an F8 and go to does that way?

That's right. Just get yourself an msdos or a windows boot disk that has fdisk on it and boot up and run fdisk /mbr.
