Removing RH from MBR


I've W2k in C: and RH in D: and I've installed Grub for dual boot in MBR. I want to remove RH to install Slack. What's the best way? Simply format D:? How can I remove Linux from MBR?

Head over to and get a copy of their boot manager. In some cases doing the above may make no difference. Should this be the case, boot from a Windows bootdisk and install XOSL. It's actually quite a good b/m.

Oh, and a little searching wouldn't have gone a miss
