Where can I find a tutorial to do it

Once you boot from the CD follow the instructions until you get to the part where you see all the partitions on your hard drive.

Also I am refering to this guide

I am going to completely uninstall SuSE Linux the reinstall is a dual boot as a way of increaseing space

Also I found these too would they help but they look oudated and when I remove Linux won't I have a huge space of blank space which I could merge into XP

Also I don't have partition magic

Its a dual boot with Xp and Xp is the primary install with SuSE as second in one hardrive

Boot the XP CD and use the fixmbr command like the tutorial you posted said.

When you restart GRUB should be gone and it should start Windows.

Right click on My Computer and select manage. You can go to the Disk Management section and erase and create 1 new partition with the old SuSe partitions.

That partition should appear as a new drive in Windows.

The only way to make 1 partition is to use a program like Partition Magic, so if you don't have it, there is no easy way without backing up and reformatting and restoring.
