Removing Linux bootloader from XP.
 
I had to remove the partition that Mandrake 9.1 was on, but now I still have the bootloader coming up. I'm running Windows XP now which doesn't seem to have fdisk on it, so I have no idea how to get rid of this bootloader. Is there a way to be rid of this thing using XP? I also have Partition Magic if that helps?

Thanks.

Put in the windows xp cd then go to the recovery console. Type fixmbr and it should detect a so called "error". This will remove the bootloader.

Many thanks.
 
Thank you oh-so-very much! That bootloader was starting to get quite grating. :)
