On my laptop i am using windows because my mom started using it and basically stole it for herself. I istalled linux on an external harddrive and i accedently installed the bootloader on it. Now I have to hook up the external HD when i want to boot. I want to nix all that and take off lilo and let windows boot up like normal. The problem is that linux never realy installed on the external HD and now NTFS is on it. lilo is installed on the MBR, how an i get XP to boot like normal?

OR you can just configure lilo to dual boot with windows
