How to uninstall XP

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have 2 partitions in my notebook. When I was having problem with C drive, I installed xp pro in D drive. Yes, I have 2 operating systems in my notebook. Now xp in C drive is working properly, I want to remove xp from D drive. It is not listed in add/remove program. When I inserted xp CD, there is no uninstallation program in it. How do I remove it from my D drive?

Once the proper install is allowed to boot, the other partition can be formatted for further use. No uninstall of XP exists in this type on installation.

Note: care should be taken when editing the boot.ini and a backup copy should be made as per the instructions.
