Just remove the partitions with fdisk, then start your install. Or start your install then remove the partitions with fdisk and let the installer create new ones - which ever takes your fancy.... or even leave your partitions and just recreate the file systems... I'd personally go for the first option though - fdisk to remove the partitions then start again.
