Is there any brute force program to *completely* rewrite everything to do with the MBR for XP?

Thanks that solved the problem that *braindead XP* had.

I guess we'll buy another harddisk for linux as *windows can't deal with partitions* - thanks to windows we're forced to buy more hardware again...

Thanks to everyone for your help getting out of the mess!
