MBR trouble

I'm trying to format my mbr, after a bad dual os install ( rh 7.3 and win2k) and I get all sort of parameter errors. Did windows 2000 change anything as far as format /mbr goes? I also tried fdisk /mbr and it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks

Boot to the Win2000 Recovery Console and run these commands

FIXMBR
FIXBOOT


To start the Recovery Console, use any of the following methods:
Start your computer with the Windows 2000 Setup floppy disks, or with the Windows 2000 CD-ROM. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press F10, or press R to repair, and then C to start the Recovery Console.

BTW the command you were looking for is

FDISK /mbr
