You don't have to do anything to remove it actually. If you just format the disk it will be removed (for ever though) so just install the right on it don't even have to boot in Linpus.
Making your laptop Dual boot(that is the term for having two operating systems on a computer) with windows and Linux is a little tricky though.
Basically the whole problem is that windows will wipe your linux if you are not careful and will wipe your boot partition for sure (Windows 7 might not - haven't tried it).
So All you have to do is install Windows. While partitining the disk just take enough space for it and leave enough for the windows - you can wipe the whole disk if you want to. The Linux will need from 4 - 12+ GB of installation space (maybe less if it's live cd and you won't keep files there). After you have installed your Windows. Just install your favorite Linux distribution in the space left. If you have any other questions mainly to the Linux installation, I'll be pleased to help you.
The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.
The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.
The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.
You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.

if your linux is corrupt which is a possiblity, you would need to go into recovery mode and try to fix your installation, however if you have a system disc that came with the machine you could always try to re-install the OS most linux distro's will allow you to select your old OS and import the settings from it during an install. However I would only do this if you cant recover your installation. ---------- DId some research, if you are using linpus linux which comes with the ONE, then it is a fedora based OS, which means you should be able to import your settings from the prior installation during a fresh installation of it.
I hope this helps, since linpus is pretty new I am going to do some more reading on it.
