    Am running two hard drives, with XP on the larger, 60 gig and Linux on the
    smaller 30 gig. I had to disconnet the IOMEGA zip drive in order for this to
    work, because there are too many drives (DVD, floppy) and according to the tech
    guy who did the dual boot, my motherboard? wasn't up to handling all
    the different operations. On boot up, I have a choice of booting to Linux or XP. Haven't used Linux much so, I wish to take out Linux and the smaller drive and just run one OS. Question. Is it possible to do it myself? and if so, how?
