    I have windows XP on my master Hard drive, I then installed Redhat 9 on a separate slave hard drive, and I have them duel booting. I should have made a copy of my windows MBR but I didn’t. If I decide to get rid of Linux how do I repair the windows MBR

    XP recovery console would be better, you can be sure it will give the boot partition back to your WindowsXP.

    Just type FIXMBR from within the console.

    Good luck!

    yeah this is also one of the solution... ;) not risky than "fdisk /mbr"
