yes, you could erase your 98se partition
-> you have to use a partition program such as Partition Magic (windows), qtparted (Linux).. or during the install of the distro

I don't know what use you are putting 98 to, but I suggest you immediately do the specified procedure!!

you dont have to delete the whole 98se partition i dont think, i think if there is enough space you can install it on the same drive, i wouldent do that though, could cause some problems... :S

thanks all for reply

Ok,

i don't need 98 anymore so I'll formate it with Partition Magic (the one I know),because I don't have much space on this drive.

And I won't 4th OS,cause 3 OS is enough

Thanx again for info,
