Linux Swap Deletion

   Hi,

    I have been unsuccesfully trying to uninstall linux and return full partion control to dos. I have deleted all of the logical drives out of the extended partition, but it still says I cant remove it. I think this is because of the linux swap area. Because linux still (even after deleting almost all of it) boots the hard drive. My question is, how can I get rid of the linux swap so I can erase the extended partion?

Thanks, Mike
