use a dos or win98 startup disk to start up yourr machine. then run this:

fdisk /mbr

this will get rid of GRUB and the Windows NTLoader will then takeover. To get rid of the linux partitions, u can do that in XP (win2k has a computer management option where u can view the partitions in your drive).

W2K CD also can 'repair' a W2K install including reinstalling the MBR - Master Boot Record. I have done this before, removed all the linus partitions and resized the W2K partition to use the complete hard drive using Partition Magic. It is a pretty simple and straight forward process. As XP follows W2K I expect the cd will also have a repair option. This is the most straight forward way of doing it.
