Default Quick Thermostat question

When I change my thermostat in my 98 DX will I have to drain all the coolant or can i drain just a little?

Don't worry about draining it.. put a pan under the car to catch the spill when you remove the old thermostat, which is a fair amount of coolant will spill..
