I was messing around with Ubuntu Linux and it installed GRUB on the master boot record and I want it gone. I was told to type 'fdisk /mbr' in MSDOS mode to get rid of GRUB. I dont know how do get into MSDOS mode.. command prompt doesnt work..

EDIT: I am using Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2

Also, this would NOT be any of my first choices but would restoring windows to factory settings work?
