How to uninstall Fedora Core 3 and install Windows XP

Hey everyone,

I havent been using Linux very long so i'm not too sure about FC3! simply put, i installed FC3 and it works fine and its great! but for a few reasons i have to uninstall FC3, and then install a dual boot - FC3 and Windows XP Professional!

It should be a simple case of changing my BIOS to read from CD and installing XP. But the CD will not boot!!! when i put it in a Computer already running XP the autorun works fine and it will let me install! so simply put, how the hell do i fix this?? i simply need to install XP and not boot into FC3 like it keeps doing!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT: is there anyway to run the d:/SETUP.exe file during boot??

Do whatever you did to make the Fedora Core 3 CD boot in the first place.
