Question Help: Migrating from Mandrake to Fedora


hi there to all the Linux Gurus,

THE SITUATION:
I have installed Mandrake 8.2 on my XP system, with dual boot. Boot magic prompts me to choose my os, which is set to xp by default.

Now i want myself indulge more into Linux, n so have downloaded the latest Fedora 5 Final, and burned it into a DVD.


The Big Question:
Can i directly migrate from Mandrake to Fedora, as both are basically Linux OS.
Or do i need to uninstall Mandrake and then install Fedora.


And plz do explain your solution at length and welcome one more newbie into your FEDORA FOLD.

Thanx a lot again to everyone out there for goin thrgh this.
cheers
