Mandrake Boot Select

ok i have xp and i had mandrake on my pc. Mandrake made a boot select on my XP drive. I am wondering how do i get rid of this? I know my profile says Red Hat as my DIS but i wanted to try my copy of Mandrake that i found.

Do you still have Mandrake installed? If you used LILO as your boot loader (which you probably would have done with MDK) then you can simply remove LILO with:
lilo -u

or you could have used fdisk in Windows of old with:
fdisk /mbr

but I don't know if that is supported in XP.
