How do I uninstall GRUB? I have windows 2000 98 and linux all on one disk, and I don't want to mess up the windows 2000 boot manager. Is there a way to uninstall GRUB with out messing the win2000 boot manager up? I have mandrake 7.2.

Do you boot into windows through GRUB? If so you can just wipe your MBR of this and re-install the Win2000 BM. If so let me know and I'll give you details.

How do you reinstall the W2K boot manager?

That depends on what filesystem you use on your win2k partition. If it is Fat32, then boot with a dos disk and type: fdisk /mbr
If its NTFS, in which case you would need to boot with the win2k recovery discs, I believe you do: FIXMBR
