ok, i have jaunty installd on an external hard drive, i backed up all my windows files onto it because im doing a reinstall of xp, however, i dont want to accidentaly delete the files or the OS on my external hard drive, but i cant disconnect it, because the only way to get to windows is through grub, and the only way to get to grub, is through the external hard drive. is there a way to disable grub, and re-enable it later?

Well as long as your not messing with the external drives partition you should be fine Just make sure to install the windows on the drive you want not the external.
