Reply-to: aclug-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx what's the best way at going at it?

I mean I have had windows on the drive in the past, it's just that it got
corrupt some how and needs to be redone.  Should I try changing the jumpers
and making it master then installing windows...then switching over drives to
the linux driver as master and re-putting on LILO?
