Post Uninstall Info

Why would someone want to uninstall Linux??Well, as it may be in my home, my wife and kids don,t like using quality products I guess!I do however have have 2 other machines of my own in which I enjoy running ,and learning Linux,on my way hopefully towards my successful passing of my RHCE someday.I have done many successful installs, including 2 dual boot systems in which 1 I need to remove Linux.I can't seem to find documentation on this subject.Also once it is removed , will my Windowz98 boot on its own again since LILo was in my MBR? Any help is appreciated.

You can use any fdisk program... there was a good one someone found you can use to wipe out Linux native drives.. here:
And you can wipe out the MBR with the command fdisk /MBR
That will eliminate the Lilo on the MBR and Windows will rewrite and boot like Linux was never there.
