Uninstall Vista Partition?!?!?!?!?!

I have xp and vista dual boot, i never really used vista, i was on xp, and the lights flickerd and my comp turned off when it turned back on it loads but doesnt take me to the grub screen where i can choose what i want to open instead i think it tries to open vista and it just doest work and stays at the bios screen. I deleted the vista partition and it does the same thing. I want to return the boot settings so that it never knew vista was there http://www.istartedsomething.com/20060622/installing-and-uninstall-vista-beta-2-for-dual-boot-with-xp/ i found that website and i can do what it says under the uninstall part except that i can;t run xp to give it that command. Do i have to do this? Or can i just delete the files it says too.

If i need to give xp that command is there a way to manually edit the boot files from a linux live cd?
XP was the main partition

Data Recovery Programs? Suggestions?

I’ve had my laptop since Christmas, and I recently kicked smelly vista into the trash and put windows 7 beta on. [Don't even think about saying that that's my problem, because it is much more stable than vista!!] So anyway, recently my computer wouldn’t boot after left unplugged and had the battery die, and I used an Ubuntu Live CD to try to copy my data out, but It was unable to mount the drive and said something about ntfs inconsistencies, corruption, or hardware failure [please! no! I'd rather data loss!] So, I’ve removed my drive from my laptop and will connect it to an external hard drive assembly to run chkdsk under linux’s reccomendation, and if that doesn’t help, I need some suggestions for data recovery software. Thanks in advance!

Fedora Linux 13 Beta 32bit KDE Live CD Screencast Review

Review style Screencast video of Fedora Linux 13 Beta 32bit KDE edition Live CD Open Source GNU/Linux Operating System. I demo this OS inside VirtualBox Virtual Machine inside of Kubuntu Linux 9.10. My conclusion is that Fedora is not easy to use or ready for the desktop or laptop masses of everyday uses, it is still just for geeks in server rooms, in my opinion. Fedora Jesse Keating has announced the availability of the beta release of Fedora 13: The beta release is the last important milestone of Fedora 13. Only critical bug fixes will be pushed as updates leading up to the general release of Fedora 13, scheduled to be released in the middle of May. A universe of new features for end users: automatic print driver installation; desktop enhancements – the Shotwell photo manager, Deja-dup backup software, Pino Identi.ca / Twitter client, and Simple Scan scanning utility; NetworkManager improvements include better Mobile Broadband, Bluetooth, and new CLI abilities; color management; enhanced iPod functionality; experimental 3D graphics support extended to free Nouveau driver for NVIDIA cards….” Original video production by the www.OSGUI.com Tech Show.
