Hi, I am new to linux world. I got Ubuntu installed on a Windows Vista machine and set it up for dual booting. Now I have Fedora 16 also installed on the machine in a different partition. Need guidance to safely remove ubuntu and keep Fedora & Win Vista in tact. Thanks for your help.

Define "removal" in your case.

always do a BACKUP of important things...

first localize where is ubuntu is installed with :

sudo fdisk -l

then you can use gparted :

sudo yum install gparted

GParted enables you to easily manage your disk partitions:

Create partition tables, (e.g., msdos or gpt)
Create, move, copy, resize, check, label, and delete partitions
Enable and disable partition flags, (e.g., boot or hidden)
Align partitions to mebibyte (MiB) or traditional cylinder boundaries
Attempt data rescue from lost partitions

then update your grub :

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
