OK, First off ,Hey,, What I have got going on right now is that I have a system that is setup with both Linux Xandros 4.0 and Windows XP. I want to remove the Linux but do not want to have to remove the Windows as well. How should I go about doing this?
They are in the same partition .

If you have a Win XP install disk use it to boot the pc. Select The Recovery Console option. Once in recovery console log in (most XP systems the administrator password is blank) then type "FIXMBR" no quote, hit Enter. That should remove the Linux boot loader from the MBR and XP will boot normally. You can delete the Linux folders from your hard drive (you might want to keep /home. It's where any work you did in Xandros will be saved).

If you don't have an install cd you can download and burn as an image of the Recovery Console ISO
