If you remove the Linux partitions you may take rh9 out
running XP install disc (repair) may take Grub out of your MBR, other MBR restoring ways can be used.
Butyou may need a better opinion as I'm also new to it.

Then I typed in fixmbr and it asked if I was sure to do this and I typed "y" for yes then it rewrote the mbr and rebooted the system and waahlaa no more grub and then I formatted the second hard drive to get rid of the rh9. I appreciate the help and now I can reinstall rh9 on my other comp
