Any confirmation on this? Would it be ok to just pop in the Live CD, run the Mint installer, format the Ubuntu partition and install Mint on it?
EDIT: Well, I'm playing with the Mint installer. And I come to the partition part. And I have three partitions. One is the NTFS partition(which is holding Windows XP), which is 62906MB. About 63GB in size. The second is a ext3(that is holding my Ubuntu) and is 16351MB. I'm guessing about 16GB in size. And the third is my Swap partition. Which is 764MB in size.http://www.lookpic.com/getimg.php?img=partition.png
Now, when I right-click on the Ubuntu partition, there is an option to Format, but I can't tick the box next to it. Like it's unavailable to me. Would anyone happen to know why?http://www.lookpic.com/getimg.php?img=edit.png
Thank you for the help.
Actually, in that Use As: box there are a bunch of options. By default it's set to Do Not Use Partition. And I cannot tick the format box. All the other options in that box are:
Ext3 Journaling File System
Ext2 File System
ReiserFS Journaling File System
JFS Journaling File System
XFS Journaling File System
FAT 16 File System
FAT 32 File System
If I choose any of those options besides Swap Area, then the Formatting box can then be ticked. So what option should I choose?
