    Dual Boot -- replace Linux, keep Windows, newb question


    Newb Question:

    I'm currently running a dual boot Windows Vista RC1 / OpenSuSE10.1 system.
    I have a 120GB Windows partition, 40 GB Linux partition(s) and an 80GB shared media (FAT32) partition. Currently everything is running fine on the Windows side, but I want to replace OpenSuSE 10.1 with FC6 when it's released.

    I currently have GRUB installed on the MBR -- Windows was installed first. Will the FC 6 install simply write a new bootloader? Any other prep I need to do first (besides a data backup)?

    Thanks in advance

    Fedora should just overwrite the existing GRUB
    bootloader, and not harm anything.
