get a bootalbe flopy or cdrom, and put a util on it to zero out the hard drive (if u use a msdos boot disk u can use a program called disktool) optionaly you can take the easyer way and just delet that partion table, run the conamd on the laptop fdisk /dev/hda tehn press "d" and a number till no more numbers are ledt to chose) also i think u can jsut install windows and it will delet suse for you if you put it on only 1 partion

You could also use either Windows/DOS fdisk or Linux fdisk to remove the Linux partitions and then just create new FAT/FAT32 partitions for Windows using the Windows installer (or Windows/DOS fdisk). It's not that hard really.
