removing 1 of 2 linux versions


Hello All,

I have a amd 64 dual core Hp 150gig hd windows xp main os. I'm experimenting with linux and like what I see.
I have 32 bit version of 6.10 ubuntu and now a 64 bit version both installed on patitioned disk. i want to unistall the 32 bit version and keep the 64 bit version if it's possible without a lot of trouble.
I like the 64 version very well and would like to keep it.
I might go to interchangable hard drives later.
Is there a precedure for this situation?
Thanks

The partition can simply be formatted, it's as easy as that. But: you need to be aware that you may run into some issues if you remove the version that installed GRUB to the MBR; basically, you won't be able anymore to boot into either windows or linux. If that happens you need to have the other one write its own GRUB to the MBR.
