Uninstalling Linux

I have recently installed Mandrake Linux 9.1 on my Dell laptop. The laptop came with no operating system, which is why I chose to do this. As a result, everything went fine, but for my personal preferences, I would rather install Windows 98. I am very new to linux, and have no clue how to go about this. I know that I am running off of Lilo. If anyone could please help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

If you just want to replace Linux put in your Win98 CD, and change your BIOS to boot from CD.

If you want to Dual Boot, Well Thats a diffrent story...

yeah boot off the cd with "cdrom support" and use the evil, but useful, fdisk. then reboot and let m$ format you drive to the darkside.
