Boot from the usb, select a partition on which to install Peppermint and format the partition. You don't 'uninstall' operating systems, you format their partition and install over it.

Thank you. I have a 4G sd card. By mistake I thought I could install peppermint on it. I did but I continued to have limpus on my hd. This time I extracted the sd card fromits slot and installed peppermint on the hd and replaced limpus. Peppermint now starts and works perfectly.
I have now a 4G sd card with useless peppermint file on it. How can I remove them and have this extra storage? Thank you

You can install GParted on Peppermint and then format the your 4GB SD card. You might also download GParted and burn it to a CD to use in the same manner. You need to make sure you are formatting the correct partition/drive. The link below is to a detailed tutorial on using GParted.

It is always a good idea to have a Live CD of your primary operating system available in case you have problems you can then access the installed system from the Live CD, whether it is on a CD/DVD/flash or SSD card.
