	She will have to use the Windows version of fdisk to create the
	new Windows partition.  I may be wrong but she will probably
	have to use linux cfdisk or fdisk to delete the current
	partition(s).  The reason I say that is I remember the Windows
	fdisk not recognizing a file system once.  I just can't remember
	if it was linux or one of the BSDs:)  

	At any rate since linux is currently installed it won't take
	much to just delete the partition(s) and then boot with a
	Windows start disk or a proprietary installation disk and create
	a new Windows partition.
