    Open disk management in windows. You will find an unknown partition. Format it to whatever you like.
    And what on earth did you do to corrupt linux drive. This is the first time I am hearing of an unrepairable corrupt linux drive.

    Boot with a Win 98 bootable disk and run this command:
    fdisk /mbr {Press Enter}

    Now boot up Win XP and from the Disk Management console, Delete Linux partitions ...
    Start > Run > diskmgmt.msc {Press Enter}

    Do NOT delete Linux partitions first or you'll lose your boot sector ..
