I have my system partitioned with Xp and another with vista. I reinstall new distros all the time and have never corrupted my windows partition.

In the partition editor make sure to only format the ext3 partition and leave the NTFS partition WELL ALONE!

If in doubt backup, backup, backup!

Hope this helps! :D
