You format the Drive and Install Windows. Can you be more specific?

Ubuntu can run almost any Windows driver for wireless if it doesn't have native support.

I'd boot to the Windows 7 dvd.

I support the 'Everybody Draw Mohammed Day'. A religion doesn't deny my freedom.

ClueLess,
I think you will be MUCH happier with Windows 7. I find it is faster than both XP and vista. Like Jefro said, boot up with the windows 7 DVD.
Also, make sure you have enough Ram to run windows 7.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

In BIOS, make sure that DVD drive is first in boot order, then insert windows 7 DVD and allow it to boot to the windows 7 DVD (as above). Choose Custom, delete the Linux partitions (if you are sure there is nothing you have not already saved somewhere else), and recreate a partitions(s) for Windows 7, and proceed to install.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
