Uninstall Ubuntu and load Fedora11


I am not new to Linux, but I have not been in this situation before. So I need to confirm before I go on.

I dual boot my laptop with Windows Vista (factory installed) and Ubuntu 9.04 . I am planning to scrap Ubuntu and load my laptop with Fedora 11 instead.

I have this question, can I put in the boot CD and load Fedora 11 in the same partition as where is loaded now? (I assume this will format the partition and load Fedora in it). But I fear if this would make my laptop go dead.

Any suggestions are appreciated !!

Thanks in advance.

Abi
