Hi all,
I am pretty new to linux. I installed Suse Linux on my Laptop which was already having windows xp. I was able to do multiple booting with the help of GRUB. Now that I don't want the Linux partition for want of hard disk space.If log in into XP and delete the linux partition using partition magic I will not able to boot XP after restart as deleting the Linux partition will remove GRUB. How can I safely remove the Linux installation and boot normally from WIndows XP.Please the matte is very urgent

Right, the grub boot files remain on the master boot record of the hard drive, but have no reference files to boot from (as you would have erased them on the Linux partition).

Do you have your Windows XP boot CD?
