There seems to be no uninstall utility included with thesedistros and I had some issues restoring the default XP configurationwithout an XP re-install. Here is the work around which may save othersin the same situation some time and effort.1. Installation Configuration.Assume that default Suse/Redhat linux has been installed over a defaultWindows XP configuration and that suse/Redhat partition tools have beenused to install linux into a new ext2 formatted disk partition andoverwrite the MBR on the windows partition(/dev/hda1). Default bootloader has been changed from Windows(NTLDR) to LILO and pc boots withLILO "select OS splash screen". User is new to Linux.2. Requirements.Delete the linux partitions(s) , reformat as NTFS and make available toXP. Restore the NTLDR bootloader.3. Solution.Insert an XP installation CD and enter setup mode. Choose the recoveryoption and boot to the DOS command line. Execute the command "FIXMBR"and reboot. The "FIXMBR" command re-initializes the MBR with NTLDR.The LILO(select Os) screen no longer appears and the PC boots straightinto windows. The linux partitions appear in XP disk manager as"unknown. Use Disk manager to reformat the linux partitions as NTFS andassign a drive letter.4, Issues.Issuing the "lilo -u" command within Linux uninstalls the LILObootloader but may not successfully restore the original MBR. Rebootinggenerates the infamous "LI" prompt and blank screen. Can reboot backinto Linux from linux boot floppy then re-install LILO which fixes theMBR but user still has Linux splash screen when system reboots.
