reinstalling vista to a different partition

I currently have vista installed of course on my C: drive, but I want to reinstall to a partitioned drive at the moment it is called I: drive (reason a lot more space on I than is on C).

So I figure a clean install onto the current I: drive.

Now this is where I need help, I do not want two versions of vista on the same PC, I am guessing vista will remain on the current C: drive there by creating a dual boot?

So how would I go about deleting the current vista installed, and put it on my I: drive?

What would happen if I was to format the current C: drive, have my disk there at the ready, would that work?
