yeah, but that's only if i run fdisk and use it to reset the MBR, right ?
fdisk /mbr if i'm not wrong.
i haven't done that and don't think i will - don't want start to mess with another thing i'm not familiar with right now.
and if i do that, and then remove the SATA drive (on which Grub had put the MBR) how will the system boot ?
besides, if i do that then the installer/Grub won't know of my Windows isntallation and won't create a dual-boot system, will it? i'll be able to boot into Linux but not into Windows!
i'm sure you can configure Grub afterwords ? /etc/grub.conf or some such, but i wouldn't know how to do it.
anyway, that questions was out of curiosity, thinking of how to remove Linux. right now i was to install Linux!
soon i'm going to try to install Ubuntu over Debian, this time with the router. wish me luck!
