Installing Linux on Mac os X

This is zica17 who is Newbie of Linux.

I have Macbook Pro which is based on Intel CPU.

I'm using Bootcamp for having multi-os on my Mac.

I have Windows XP and OS X on my Mac.

I want to wipe out the Windows OS and install Linux.

I don't know it is possible to that.

Has anyone tried to install Linux on Mac OS X through Bootcamp?

Let me know. Thanks

Instructions here are for triple boot Mac/Windows/Linux. Just modify the instructions to select the windows partition as the place to install Linux. During Linux installation, the windows partition will be reformated for Linux, and windows will go away, replaced by Linux.
