How do I do this .. I guess that I am am asking .. If I install the Windows 7 Do I have to delete my Vista?

Since the RC is going to expire in about a year, you should make a partition on your hard drive. This way you can have Windows 7 and Vista side-by-side, keeping your files :huh:

Iíd also suggest that you take the time to backup your PC, just in case. Hereís a link to that: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/pc-backup.aspx. Thatís also part of the Windows 7 page, so you can access all sorts of Windows 7 goodness from there.
