I have an IDE Primary HD installed Linux in a partition with maximum capacity of the HD.

Even I had removed the 'Non-DOS' partition and create an new 'MS DOS' partition. The Linux still boot-up automatically.

I tried the FDISK with WIN95 and DOS6.21several times.
Could you please tell me how to remove Linux completely?

Thanks.

Does FDISK /MDB is a MS DOS command?

MBR, not MDB (stands for Master Boot Record), and yes, it is.

Does Removing the Master Boot Record also Destroy all data on Disk?

I'm not sure about *removing*, but the command above overwrites it, and that doesn't destroy any other data on the disk.
