Clean installation of FC3 on dual boot system

Quick stupid question, how do you wipe clean the FC3 partitions on a dual boot (w/ XP) system and reinstall it again fresh (without affecting the XP partition)?

Not a stupid question. Check this out: When you do the install, FC will ask you how you want the disk partitioning done. Note the remove all Linux selection, that's just what it does. It leaves alone the Windows partitions.

That's a really cool site, you can look at the complete install for many distros.
