    Hello and welcome!

    There is no need to remove prior versions of Linux because the installer will format the partitions when you go to put the new version on.

    Linpus Linux is based on Fedora 8, but isn't itself Fedora 8.

    That said, you don't really uninstall an operating system. If your friend wants to install Fedora, part of the process will be formatting the harddrive, which will effectively wipe everything off it, and then installing the new system to the drive.

    You also don't open the disc from a terminal. You need to set your BIOS to boot from the CD.
