I have now red Hat 7.2 with GRUB installed on my computer. Using 2 HDD, on
the first one Win ME & XP and on the second hard drive i have red Hat 7.2.
Now, i'm interested in trying out another distro (SuSE 8.0 when it is out)
I'm using Partition Magic to get rid of the linux installation but i don't
really know how i would get rid of GRUB from the MBR. Can anyone help me out
on this one, please ?????
