DL360 G3 remove SYSLINUX from boot

Hi

I have inhertited a HP DL360 G3 server that was running Linux (Fedora Core 6). I wish the server to run Windows Server 2003. It has 2 drives (72gig) running as raid 1+0. HP smartstart is being used to load and configure the server package.

After server installation has finished and the server reboots, the following appears on screen:
SYSLINUX 1.75 (date) Boot Failed.

I guess this means that the Linux loader is still in the mbr of the disk array.

Any ideas on how I would clear the mbr so that I can get Windows to install and run?

Thanks
