Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux. Just boot from the CD or DVD
and you can reformat and partition your disk during the install, there
is no need to do it before. You can do an automatic partition too where
FC will set up the swap file etc for you. You can also modify the
partition size to leave some space for another OS if you want to.
