I'm setting up a new laptop and introducing linux to a friend... (who
doesn't speak much English and hasn't used computers before BTW)

Last time I setup a laptop, I just deleted the "D:" partition and
installed linux there. This baby has XP installed on one NTFS
partition. Doh! The only practical way I can think of to deal with it is
fips or something like it, but does it work on NTFS?

As much as I'd like, erasing XP completely is not an option.
Recommendations? Trials? Tribulations (go lightly please)?
