Unable to uninstall fedora 9 from system.


I'm new at using Linux. I was having a system with fedora 9 installed in it. I tried to remove it using this command:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1
and then I shut down my computer. Now I am trying to install ubuntu from USB drive but i am not able to do that. System is not responding to boot from USB HDD.Please suggest me what to do.

1. you don't need to un-install Fedora, the install program will overwrite it
2. have you gone into the BIOS to ensure that the USB drive will be the first drive it tries to boot from?
