    find yourself a windows 98 boot disk, boot to it, if it gives you some shit about not having the correct fat partitions just ignore it and wait till you get to a command prompt, then at the prompt type in fdisk /mbr
    ex. A:\>fdisk /mbr

    this will clear lilo or grub from your boot record and when you reboot it should go strait to windows, then just use windows disk manager to reformat the drive linux was on

    What was wrong with mandrake did you not like it?

    why not try another distro.

    like someone already said the fixmbr command in the recovery console should do the trick.
