I have the "old" ROS Turtle version installed on 64 bit Ubuntu 10.04 from long ago. Do I need to remove the ROS Turtle version before installing ROS Fuerte? If so, where may I find instructions to cleanly remove all ROS Turtle so I can install ROS Fuerte in a clean environment.

I'm fairly new to ROS. When you write "just source the of the new installation". what do you mean by that?! Could you just give me exact steps to execute? Please verify that your answer implies I'm able to switch back and forth between ROS Turtle, ROS Electric and ROS Fuerte without any version interfering with the other? (so in that case, uninstalling Turtle is not necessary)

No, just source the of the new installation.

If you want to remove an unused install, it depends how you installed it. For a source install, just delete that. If you installed via packages, just use your package manager to uninstall.

Have a look at The installation guide in point 1.5 "Environment setup"

Just change the line in you .bashrc file to fuerte.
