linux uninstall

I have a 40 GB hard disk, in which I had earlier 4 windows 98 partitions -c,d,e & f each 10GB. I have then installed Linux Fedora Core 1 in the last partition.
Now the systems boots using the Grub boot loader, with choice to boot windows or Linux fedora.
Now i want to uninstall Linux alone and bring my PC back to original state, ie, with Windows 98 and 4 partitions c:,d:,e:& f:.
Please tell me how to to do this in detail

Hi srinipkweb,

log into windows and type fdisk /mbr .. this will get rid of bootloader - grub
Use a partition manager like partition magic to format the drive occupied by linux ... You can also format it by booting off your windows install CD .. it should show the space occupied by linux as unallocated ... simply format it .. use FAT32 filesystem

Cheers!

For geting rid of the partition, you may have to delete it using fdisk first and then add it back as a fat partition.

Then format as sunnycoder just described.
