Unhappy Hard Disk Troubles

Okay so Ive installed RHLinux 7.0 with the dual boot option of booting into Windows. I dedicated my D: to RH, leaving my C: a FAT32 Billy-compliant disk. When LiLo installed, I added it to the MBR of C: . The problem? I need to uninstall RH on D: and convert the disk back to a FAT32. Ive tried to FDISK it, straight FORMAT, and eventually got results by stuffing it into a P1 133 and giving it the LOW LEVEL FORMAT. So I got my D: clean but now sit with the problem (which could be painfully worked around) of having LiLo still written into the MBR of C: . Would anyone out there have some advise for me on this topic?????
