If you need to "delete Linux", then simply deleting your Grub boot loader
won't do it. You need to reformat the partitions, using a tool like
Partition Magic, or something. You will also have to reinstall the Windows
If all you want to do is boot into Windows automatically instead of Ubuntu,
then open up your grub config file:
$ kdesu kedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
Each OS on your system is an entry in this menu; the line "default" near the
top determines which OS is loaded automatically on boot, starting with 0. On
my system, Windows XP is the 9th entry, so if I wanted to boot into Windows
automatically, I'd set default to 8.
