I set up linux on a test mach and now plan on installing on another machine. my problem is that in uninstalling I must have missed a step. on boot I still get the LILO boot option and if I do not enter "dos" the mach attempts to boot to linux. naturally it just stops since linux was removed. the prob must be in boot magic. where do I find this so I can uninstall it.

If you were still able to get into linux, you would type "lilo -u" to uninstall the linux loader. Since that's no longer available, you need to use a windows boot disk to boot your system and then type "fdisk /mbr" at the prompt to rebuild your windows master boot record. Leave a comment if you still have problems. Hope this helps.
