I have an extrenal hard drive now and want to take Kubuntu off my laptops internal drive and run Linux off the external. How can I do this and put the 10 gigs back to windows?

boot up with WinXP cd and go to "restore", pick your windows installation, then do "fix mbr" it will give you a message trying to scare you like "if something goes wrong you'll lose the bootability of your drive blah blah blah" just shut it up... say "y" and press enter. Wait for it (takes about a minute or so). When it says its done, reboot, take the windows cd out. You're now back to having a Windows bootloader and have XP be 100% of your drive.
if you don't mind having grub, then just edit grub.conf and remove all the linux entries. then you don't need to do the fix mbr.
