The same way you did the first time. Select the same partitions and mount points and it will be overwritten.

Generally, it is a good idea to provide more information than you have.

For example, we are assuming that you are asking about re-installing the Operating System, rather than re-installing an application.

Re-install 9.10 (what? Ubuntu 9.10?)

Did you perform the original installation?

Also if you give why you want to re-install, you might get some help on solving your issue without re-installing.
You might save some time and learn something new as well.

thankyou for being so prompt. Yes I wanted to reinstall the whole 9.10 system. when I first installed it, I found i was using only 250 meg instead of 1 gig. it doesn`t seem to want to let me re-install off the cd.

What do you mean by that? What was it using? Physical memory or hard drive space? Or something else? If you want to increase the partition space for some, you can boot off live media and use Gparted to increase it if you have some spare space.

It is some hat strange that it would not re-install.
What is the error message ?
Or try a fresh install on the same partition
