It depends on what you are now going to do with the system. If you are going to install Windows, the steps are a little more complicated, as the Windows cd will not see Linux partitions to start the installation, especially if you used the entire hard disk to install RedHat.

 

Are you going to install Windows, or another flavor of Linux?

 

If Linux, then just do an installation of the new distro and the partition will be written over by the new distro.

 

If Windows, you need to format the hard drive. There are a number of ways to do this. Let us know what you plan to do and a little information about your system. This will help to guide us properly. Especially if this is a Dell or Gateway system. The rules are a little different.

...and the answer to the question that I posed;

This is not a Dell or Gateway system and is a desktop system?

 

If you are going to install Windows, what version are you going to install?

 

Do you still have the Fedora disks?

 

What I am getting at, is what are you going to be doing with the hard drive and what possible drive formatting utilities that you might have on hand.

 

The answer lies in what you want to do with the system and the best way to accomplish it.
