Unhappy upgrading to fedora 4 with dual boot


Hi,

I have a computer that has Windows XP Professional and Fedora Core 3 dual boot on a single hard drive. Here is how I installed it. Windows XP Professional was installed first and it took up all of the hard drive. So I resized it using the Norton Partition Magic 8 software. I popped in the Fedora Core 3 CD and chose to manually partition it using Disk Druid. I made a /boot (100MB), swap (256MB), / (12GB), and /video parition (/video taking up the rest of the free space). As for the boot loader, I left it as default settings and didn't mess with it. It works perfectly. I would like to keep the /video partition, and the Windows XP Professional partition intact but wipe Fedora Core 3 from my hard drive and do a fresh install of Fedora Core 4. I have the GRUB loader. How would I go about doing this in my situation?

Thanks

Just pop the FC4 dvd in and in the bootloader do the same thing as you did in FC4, except leave the video partition alone.
simple.
