Changing distro on a dualboot system

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what I would do in my situation? I have an 80Gb hard drive currently with Windows 2000 Pro the only thing on it. I was wanting to partition it to give Linux about 30-35Gb, and install FC3 to dualboot with Windows 2000. Thing is, I might want to change distro later. Can I just reuse the same partition again, and just install the new distro straight over Fedora, or do I have to reformat anything/make new partitions/uninstall Fedora? I'm a bit of a Linux n00b, you see.

If you upgrade to a distro that can retain the info in your home directory then remember to delete hidden files when you upgrade, otherwise it can make the system very unstable.
