Well, in the documentation that I used to have, it stated that doing an
`fdisk /mbr` would simply reset the MBR with just the info DOS/Windows
needed to boot. I've used that command a few times in the past (to get
rid of LILO) without any problems. The documentation did warn, however,
that there is always a chance for something to go wrong and strongly
advised backing up any important data before issuing that command.
I never really worried about it though, and I even issued the commands
in a DOS shell under Win95. Heh, if that's not living dangerously, I
don't know what is!
