hmmm do you have Partation Magic 8 ? if you do use it to format the linux partation and after that you can edit your boot.ini to boot from MS OSI miss Dimebag Darrell

what bootloader did you use?

boot with a win98 startup disk. at the A: prompt (providing you used either linux bootloader) type "fdisk /mbr"
then you can boot back into xp and use disk management to format whatever drive you installed linux if you chose a seperate one.My signature really sucks

Next time boot the XP CD go into rescue mode and at the console run fixmbr -- not a good idea to be fiddling with Linux if you have a shaky grasp of computer/Windows basics such as disk setup and boot loaders -you could easily have lost your data
