How to reinstall Linux

My computer currently has 3 OS installed - Win98, WinXp and RedHat Linux. I want to remove RedHat and put Mandrakes on.

My question is what are the steps I need to take in order to remove RedHat and install Mandrake (without affect Winw98/Xp)? I am using LILO.

I am a beginner in Linux. Any help would be really appreciated.

  1. Just boot from the mandrake cd, when it gets to the partitioning part, just format the redhat partition and keep on going.

  2. Do I need to change anything in LILO? or it should automatically point to Mandrake when it overwrites Redhat?

    What about the swap space? Do I just point that to the exising one created by Redhat?
  3. actually, you'll reinstall the whole thing, so you'll reinstall LiLo completely.
  4. Mandrake will reinstall a bootloader for you, so don't worry about that. Yeah, and just select the same swap partition you did for redhat.
