Uninstalling Redhat Linux


Hello Groups

I am new to Linux. I have installed Redhat Linx 9.0 distributions in my dual booting (Windows XP and Linux )computer .(Intel Pentium IV, 40 Disk hard disk). Now I want to remove Redhat Linux and install Fedora distribution in the linux partition. How could I do that ? What are all the steps I have to follow>

thanks

G.Loganathan

READ THIS FIRST!

Basically as follows: boot from the install media; follow the install procedure as normal, but opt for a new install rather than an upgrade, and select the RH9 partitions to be formatted.

(Apologies for shouting, but it could save you a *lot* of grief. I followed these instructions when installing FC2 and had no problems.)
