Page Down is the `next' key. Page Up is the `prior' key.
Setting a key to nil removes any binding it might have had.

(global-set-key [next] nil)
(global-set-key [prior] nil)

Also, you need not quote a vector - vectors are self-evaluating:

(global-set-key [up] 'mark-whole-buffer) =
(global-set-key (quote [up]) 'mark-whole-buffer)

You can remap the commands, instead of defining the keys. That will move all
keys bound to a given command to another key, which you prefer. See the Elisp
manual, node `Remapping Commands'. As an alternative, see also function
`substitute-key-definition', in node `Changing Key Bindings'.

To get the command currently bound to a key, use function `lookup-key' (see node
`Functions for Key Lookup'). To find out the command bound to a given key
interactively, use `C-h k' (`describe-key').
