Uninstalling MacOS X Install
If you need to uninstall MacOS X, and you don't want to/can't erase the partition, here is one of the better discussions on how to do it on MacFixIt:

Uninstalling OS X - Is it possible?

The key is making sure that the invisible files are deleted, otherwise on a reinstall of MacOS X you will be faced with a login window instead of the setup assistant.

Tip: Use Sherlock to delete invisible files: custom -> edit -> More search options, select 'is invisible', then drag the invisible files/folders to the trash.

Editor's note: You can also try this article on about.com's Mac OS X site for some additional tips.

Reclaiming some MORE space Install
If you are short on disk storage space and would like to reclaim some, try
/Applications/GrabBag/QuickTime Movies
There are 156 megabytes worth of trailers there that can be deleted, unless of course you can't bear to get rid of Charlie's Angels.
