See if there is a file named uninstall.bat located in the lnx4win folder. If it's there, run it to uninstall lnx4win.

Could you post a copy of the uninstall.bat file? Also, what happens when you run it? Do you get any messages? Did you check to see if any of the files were removed?

When I left lnx4win I just nix'd the whole directory since that's all it was, did a sys c: from the windows bootdisk to freshen config.sys and autoexec. You can do an fdisk /mbr at that time too if you want also if you've changed bootloaders like lilo instead of loadlin only. sys doesn't always work, but it's worth a try if you can't get it off through the conventional uninstallers.

This is a copy I found:

cls
@echo off

c:
cd \windows\temp
if exist lnxflag goto del1:

echo.
echo Lnx4Win Uninstallation...
echo This program will remove all Lnx4Win files from the hard disk !
echo.
echo.
echo Press a key to continue...
echo Press CTRL+C to stop the Program !
echo.
pause > nul

cd \lnx4win
copy uninstall.bat \windows\temp\lnxflag
copy uninstall.bat \windows\temp\lnxuninst.bat
copy rm.exe \windows\temp
cd \windows\temp
call lnxuninst.bat

:del1
del lnxflag
rm -rf \lnx4win
rm -rf \mandrake
cd \

if exist config.mdk goto del2:
goto fin

:del2
del config.sys
ren config.mdk config.sys

:fin
exit


All it does is delete the following directories:

c:\lnx4win
c:\mandrake


and then it deletes the c:\config.sys file, renames the c:\config.mdk file to c:\config.sys . You can do this yourself from an msdos prompt or windows explorer. Just make sure before you delete the c:\config.sys file that the c:\config.mdk exists. Otherwise, you won't have any c:\config.sys file.
