Question Uninstalling Fedora Core 2?

Hi all, I installed Fedora core 2 but i need the extra space on my hard drive, I have Windows XP and Fedora installed on the same hard drive using "GRUB", I need to uninstall Fedora and just use Windows (for the extra gigs).

Shall i just use PartionMagic and delete all the partition apart from the windows XP partition?

If i do delete all the partition apart from XP, Will GRUB still be on my PC?

Someone told me that GRUB is very hard to get rid of.

Please reply a.s.a.p

go ahead and use partition magic to remove the partition and resize your windows partition to fill the remainder of the drive then boot from your windows xp cd into the recovery console and log in as administrator and run the command 'fixmbr' you can also boot a windows 98/95 floppy disk and run 'fdisk /mbr'
