Reinstall Mandrake 9.2?

After learning a lot about linux, and screwing up a few things, i would like to have a fresh start to linux once again.... my harddrive is partitioned for 15gig for linux and 15gig for windows, it was partitioned by the Mandrake installer.

So, how can i uninstall mandrake and restore my partitions back to just one 30gig partition for windows, then reinstall Mandrake?

Just reinstall. Mandrake will over write the partition you select. It will also let you make new partitions or resize some of what you have. Its not a bad installer.
