http://forums.fedoraforum.org – hello all. I been in the linux world about a whole week now. I have dual booted my laptop with xp and unbuntu 9.04. Everything is great but I would like to delete ubuntu and give fedora a try. I wish to keep windows xp for now. If I use windows to delete ubuntu partions, soon as I reboot grub will be gone and I will not be able to get to xp. I thinking if I boot to fedora live dvd, wipe out ubuntu partitions, re-create partitions in the exact same space, install fedora and then reboot I will be fine. Am I right here or not. Will fedora reinstall grub, lilo or whatever to the mbr and when I reboot I will get a menu that allows me to choose which os I want to boot just as I am currently doing. Loosing windows is not an option just yet. Sorry for the beginner type question but books tell me no detail and google did not return and exact scenario for my situation. thank you (HowTos)
