Smile Uninstalling SUSE 11.2

I have 2 hard drives "C" and "D", one for windows 7 pro (C) and the other with SUSE 11.2 (D). I have GRUB as the multi booter on the "C" drive. Everything is great and I am very impressed with Linux (first time).
I now want to try Ubuntu but cannot find how to unistall GRUB and then SUSE, (or do I just reformat D and install Ubuntu?) I would very much appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance.

If you just like to replace opensuse by UBUNTU just tell installer of UBUNTU to use the partitions now used by opensuse .
To do use the Custom , Expert . Advance option of the UBUNTU installer to tell Ubuntu with partitions it may use .
If you do not change it UBuntu will overwrite opensuse GRUB
