When you launch the installer after downloading and burning the DVD 
image onto a disc, you will see a pulldown allowing you to remove all 
partitions from the drive so you could then use the entire HD for 
Fedora. The default I believe it to remove only remove Linux partitions.

The other advice you got from others with trying the "Live CD" might be 
good to try before blowing away the previous system. I use Fedora on 
several Computers Exclusively and find no limitations or need for XP or 
a similar OS.
