Actually I ran 'fixmbr" from Windows CD to overwrite the MBR....then I
used Knoppix and QTparted to delete the Fedora partitions and make them
free space...then Kubuntu simply installed....I was offered the option to
use free space.  It also installed GRUB and I'm back in business.  Would
use Ubuntu, but can't seem to get Amarok to work...and I gotta' have my
music!  :-)  

As for Lexia....I did the same....local install on the iBook and simply
point the records to a network share (samba share).  I use the same share
for both Windows and OS X.  You need to mount the network volume first (I
made an alias on the users desktop...in fact I created a seperate "Lexia"
user on the laptops belonging to the students using Lexia.  I have a
seperate image for them.  Works fine for the most part. 
Although...anytime they can't find the records...if they ask to search for
them...that toasts almost everything...might as well reimage as it's
faster.
