Re: Partition problem

you can use fdisk to make the windows partition active. Then after rebooting the windows partition should start.

After that you can remove the linux partitions with fdisk, and give them back to windows.

Good luck

Re: Partition problem

Use another Win95 or Win98 workstation to format a bootable floppy and copy the \windows\command\fdisk.exe program to it. Boot the affected machine from this floppy and at the A: prompt type fdisk /mbr remove disk and reboot. Depending on your version of windows you may be able to remove the Linux partitions with fdisk or use something like PartitionMagic or the Linux install disk.
