changing partition type


I decided that I don't need that MacOSX partition on my dual boot
ibook anymore. Is it safe to delete that partition (/dev/hda9) and
re-create a linux partition there instead? I am not quite sure,
because the partition map looks quite, uhm, interesting with all that
Apple driver stuff..

ibook01:/home/alex# fdisk -l /dev/hda
        #                    type name                ( size )
/dev/hda1     Apple_partition_map Apple               ( 31.5k)
/dev/hda2          Apple_Driver43 Macintosh           ( 28.0k)
/dev/hda3          Apple_Driver43 Macintosh           ( 28.0k)
/dev/hda4        Apple_Driver_ATA Macintosh           ( 28.0k)
