Hi,

Removing linux from a partition or hard drive will not remove the linux boot loader ( either grub or lilo ).

The boot loader is installed in the Master Boot Record ( MBR ) and can be removed by booting into dos and typing the following command at the command prompt;

fdisk /mbr

This will overwrite the linux boot loader with the standard dos mbr.

Bruce.

Choose Windows 98 and you'll be alright.
