    help. pipe replacement question

    okay, i need some help. i need to replace a pipe in my basement that is leaking from its thread. it is part of an old radiator that we have in our basement. by the way, we have a steam heating system. anyways..... we had the heating guy here, and he said all that has to be done is to take the radiator out, and replace it with a regular pipe. this is necessary cause i guess this is part of the return to the boiler so capping it off wouldnt be a solution. anyways, i need help in doing this, what are the steps i take in replacing this pipe. i know its one inch. and i know i have to turn the power off to the boiler, but are there any other steps i need to take before i cut the pipe, measure it, then take the size to the hardware store and put it on where the radiator pipe is. please let me know, thanks
