How to Uninstall the GRUB boot loader? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

How to Install the GRUB boot loader? Pardon me if I'm cross-posting to too many, or to inappropriate groups. I'm a newbie, trying to install Linux for the first time. I won't describe the problems I've had here trying to install Red Hat 8.0 on a machine with an ASUS P4s533 motherboard. But'd like to try afresh, with a different flavor of Linux. I've read that Mandrake 9.1 is pretty good this hardware. But how to uninstall the GRUB boot loader? It's not sufficient to reformat the partition on my drive that I assigned to Linux. Or is it? Thanks! ...

    describe
    the problems I've had here trying to install Red Hat 8.0 on a machine
    with an ASUS P4s533 motherboard. But'd like to try afresh, with a
    different flavor of Linux. I've read that Mandrake 9.1 is pretty good
    this hardware.

    But how to uninstall the GRUB boot loader? It's not sufficient to
    reformat the partition on my drive that I assigned to Linux. Or is it?

    Thanks!

    Install MDK and choose other bootloader - it'll overwrite the GRUB.

    .... MDK will, if you specify, overwrite the current grub
