Fed.18 - Win.7 dual-boot: how to re-install Fed. 18.

Hi,

I have a dual-boot system with windows 7 home installed first, then Fedora 18 installed from a Live Media. Software development is one of the main objectives of getting Fedora. But the Live Media install seems to lack too much of what I need to do software development. I believe it would be easier to just install the full Fedora 18 distro rather than trying to hunt down, download, and install each package I need. What's the best way to do that? The instructions seem neither clear nor complete on this. Can I just install (from a dvd) over the current installation, or should I first delete the current installation? If it's best to first delete the current installation, how should I do that without hurting the windows 7 home installation? The instructions seem to have missed windows 7 in that section.

Thank-you in advance for your help.

Bill.
