I need help

I installed Mandrake Linux on my second drive, a 13gig, and I already had Windows 2000 on my first drive, 40gig. I tried Linux for a while and didn't like it so I trid to get rid of it. In windows with Partion Magic, I reformated the 13gig. I rebooted and Grub loaded. I just see "grub>" now. How do I boot windows again?

You need to run the msdos command fdisk /mbr.

I had this same problem not too long ago and I think I ran FDISK /MBR about 50 times and it still never fixed the problem.

FDISK /MBR won't work if you're running 3rd party disk management like EZbios... Otherwise it should work fine.
