I have Lilo on my comp, and I wanted to get rid of it. I tried deleting Linux, but now i have a scerwed up partition (Taking up 600 Megs that i need) and a LILO boot that goes to Linux when i forget to type "win". But since Linux is not there, my comp crashes. Any ideas on how to solve these problems? I am willing to pay more then promised if it is desired. I need this to start working!
