uninstall mandrake 9.1 + preserve partitions
 
hello,

i have a system which dual boots win2k, and mandrake 9.1.....I would like to uninstall mandrake and install a diff linux distribution
-is there any way of doing this without deleting my linux partition/swap space?
-if so, do i just need my mandrake boot disk/cd's?

thanks

Yes. Just choose to format your linux partitions during new install and that will erase Mandrake.

If your /home is a seperate partition, I would recommend not re-formating that. That way you can keep your user data, and all you need to is migrate it to the new accounts that you create.
