tried fc5, want to try another distro..

is it possible to install a distro on top of fc5, or would i need to completely remove it.
if so how can i remove fc5 and grub?

thanks in advance

When you install your new distro, it will automatically format the partition you are installing to. So you do not need to remove fc5 ahead of time.
You also do not need to remove grub, as most distros will automatically re-install it (or lilo).
Hope this helps, and good luck with the new install!
