Question Need Help To Uninstall FC3 From Dual Boot WinXP System

I have a corporate notebook that came with a company-supplied XP image. I successfully installed Fedora Core 3, but have been told to remove it. I would like to preserve the XP partition as it holds valuable personal and business data, so reimaging is a worst-case option. Is there an reliable way to uninstall Fedora and restore my notebook to its original XP-only configuration? Thanks in advance for your responses.

see this post:

basically, you can just delete the partitions, resize your hd to what it was, then use fixmbr to restore the bootloader.

I attempted to do that through Partition Magic 8, but received an error message and a view of the drive that PM claimed to be corrupted. The system still works, so I haven't lost anything. Is there a better way to remove the Core partitions.

Thanks for the reply.
