for this you need a good bootable disk for installing unix. and take the backup of your most important data. then insert the bootable disk into the DVD ROM. and restart your computer. and divert the booting from hard disk to CDDVD ROM. then follow the instructions. Keep in mind that you must be careful while making partitions. if you would like to change that you can do but the contained in those disks will be lost
