How to remove Ubuntu and put Windows back on?

I have a problem, because lately I installed ubuntu on my netbook and I decided that it worked faster with Windows XP and I would like to go back to it, but I don't know how to remove ubuntu from my hard drive without an live CD (because I don't have an cd-rom). I tried to find a solution, but I didn't find it anywhere. I would be thankful if somebody could help me.

@Daniel How do you intend to install windows XP? Since you have a netbook without CD-drive it'll definitely support USB boot. So just create a bootable USB stick with XP on it and format the Ubuntu partition during XP setup. –  Kshitiz Sharma Dec 15 '12 at 8:03
