questions about instaling FC3

During installation of FC3 it gives me an option to delete all linux partitions on the harddrive.

I currently have suse 9.1 installed dual booted with xp

If I choose delete all linux partitions this will only erase suse 9.1 and FC3 will install over that free space right? i still want to keep the xp partition as is.

Thought I'd ask before i screw something up

I would think so, but you should probably manualy partition it to be safe, that tends to be the safe way to go working on multi boot systems. You just need a swap and a /partition for your basic setup. Fedora docs should have help on what partitons, file systems, sizes etc are suggested.

I say, always do manual.
