Full Format Questions

Hi, I am having trouble with my wireless internet, and from what I have read on other threads, it seems it is fully supported on OpenSuse 10.2

I have installed version 10.3 (a lot of people have said this is where the problem starts), and so I am considering downgrading to the previous version.

My question is - as a not-so-good linux user - can I just overwrite suse 10.3 or will my hard disk then contain both? Is it possible to do a full format kinda thing and scrub the lot? The laptop only has 120gig and therefore I will not want 2 operating systems on it.

Thanks for any help in advance.

You can use the installer to completely replace 10.3 ... read carefully when it gets to the partition manager.
