How to remove the dual selection OS during start-up?

I’ve tried running Linux Ubuntu OS to my system in which windows XP has already been installed. I’ve used the live CD for Ubuntu which means that the Ubuntu was running without being installed in my PC. There was an option during start-up which prompts what OS I should use, whether the currently installed windows or the Ubuntu. The option always prompt or shows even if I havent put the Ubuntu CD. I want to remove this prompt message so I can start windows directly, with no hassle. How will I do that?

How do i turn an inactive partition into active using linux?

okay i tried to install linux but forgot about the extra partition i need to make for the swap file.i wanted to dual boot xp and linux ubuntu.so when i tried to boot back into xp it said that there was a problem with the operating system (os) and im guessing its because i deactivated the partition where xp is located and set to active the linux one (i havent installed linux im stll on the live cd but dont want to install it until i make and extra partition for the swap file). so my question is how can i set active the partition where i have xp using the linux live cd. or do i need to install ubuntu and forget about the swap file?any help is appreciated

Something seriously wrong with my GB hard drive.?

I decided to load up my computer up one day and, it comes to a screen where it asks me if i wanted to load windows normaly, in safe mode, etc….and i do normal mode….then just after it comes to the windows loading screen it will restart and come back to the screen, i have tried all of the modes and havent had any luck, all dose the same….I wanted to try to back up my important files and i have done a number of things to try to do that such as, load up linux live cd, put the hard drive as a slave in my other computer with windows xp…i try to access the harddrive and it will sort of freeze up my pc…..whats wrong with my harddrive and how can i fix it????
