I have 100GB on my hard disk. Let's say I want to install some version of Linux. I create a partition of say, 30GB on my disk, install Linux and that's that. Now, if I later decide I don't like/need Linux anymore, can I then delete everything on the 30GB partition and give it back to Windows?

which OS are you using?

if you are using vista, the built in disk management system can do it very easily.

one thing to be wary of: a linux installation will automatically install a bootloader, and simply removing the linux partition wont correct this. you would need to use the windows disc and for xp use the repair console and use: "fix/ mbr", and with vista, tell it your location, and click repair.
