uninstalling Linux
I want to know how i can unistall Linux from my computer. I have a dual boot system , having win xp and red hat 9. will it be safe if i delete linux partition? if yes how can i do it

Just delete the partitions and it will be uninstalled. Any partitioning tool such as fdisk will let you do this.

Depending on what you are going to do after removing it and what bootloader you are using you may need to reinstall another one.

i'm using LILO and i want to install slackware after unistalling.
will it be ok if i delete the partition from Partition Magic and after that if i boot my PC will it run normaly or i have to load some other boot loader......

Just run the Slackware installation, part of it is to repartition your hard drive and to format it. You also get to install a new bootloader.
