Just to clarify

Do you want to completely remove linux

Also what is your processor and how much RAM do you have?

Boot with the XP cd (you may need to change the first boot device in the bios to do this)(also make sure the xp cd is in the drive) Now have a look click here you will at step5. "Choose an installation partition" have to delete all the partitions and create either one or more new ones. (the first partition myst be bigger then 2ooomb my personal chooce would be to leave 2000mb free eg take the whole drive size less 2000mb and later whilst in windows go to disk manager and make this fre space into a new partition.)

Then load windows onto you new c partition you will need to use the format option ...choose ntfs and windows will do the rest for you.
