Re: uninstall Debian Linux

    I tried to boot with disc #1 Red Hat Linux Fedora. The monitor shows
what looks like files being loaded but is not. The on screen printing seems
to stay the same although it looks to be scrolling.  I took the disc out and
the same thing continued  30 min. or so. I had to stop it by killing the
power to the computer.  I have Debian installed and was trying to install
over top of it.
    Do I have to remove Debian first and of course if so how??
