    It should not be that difficult. The problems you might run into would depend first of all on how you boot your systems. Do you use Grub bootloader from Red Hat to boot or Ubuntu? Posting the results of "fdisk -l" command run as root would show your partition information and enable someone to suggest a way to do it.

    IF you know precisely on which partition Fedora is installed AND your bootloader configuration files aren't coming from Fedora, you can just delete the partition from either XP or Ubuntu and reformat it to something Ubuntu can read (ext2, ext3, reiserfs, etc).

    However if your bootloader configuration is in the Fedora partition that complicates things. You'd need to restore your bootloader from the Ubuntu partition with something like SuperGRUB.
