Of course you can... just format the RH partition and you'll have a nice clean partition to install Gentoo on.

Just follow the instructions on the gentoo documentation. I installed Gentoo once, and the documentation on installation is easy to follow... However, there's not much in Gentoo that made me want to leave my beloved Slackware
