I have both XP and FC4. How can I upgrade to FC5 without damaging the boot loader?

Right now I have both Windows XP and FC4. How can I replace FC4 with FC5 without damaging the boot loader. I don't want the XP to be damaged. Thanks in advance.

If you choose the upgrade option when installing FC5, it will not mess with you partitions.
