"This article describes how you can remove the Windows NT or Windows 2000 operating system from your computer, and then install the Linux operating system."
"The partition types used by the Linux and Windows operating systems are compatible - if you're running Linux that is. You do not need to remove your existing Windows partitions to install Linux. Linux will usually detect any Windows partitions and allow you to access them directly."
"IMPORTANT: Before you follow the steps in this article, you should back up any important files you have. If you intend to restore the Windows operating system at a later date, please remember that you can easily make a dual-booting system instead. Linux does not insist on running roughshod over any other operating systems you have installed."
