    Alright, so I had setup a dual boot system, Windows XP on the first partition and SuSE9.1 on the rest of the HD. I don't want Linux anymore, so how do I get linux off my system, and the HD space back without having to completely re-install? I'm thinking of just formatting the part of the HD it's on, and then if it gives me trouble when I boot afterwards, I'll just run fixboot from the XP CD. But is there a better way?

    Grub is my bootloader, so will that pose a problem?

    Are you using a linux boot loader? If so, you might need to either repair the boot sector manually or do a repair install of xp. I am not a linux guy, so you might want to wait for someone more experienced with linux.
