    yes linux was not able to provide effient access to windows file systems some years ago and writing to NTFS partions was major problem

    however the open source community fought all the problems and now it could provide all the features required

    hope your installation goes in a right way

    If your Fedora disk contains Livecd testdrive it

    report back any problems you face during installation.
    life is the greatest opportunity that the nature had given you

Okay so that's why I can save a file in Open Office in linux and send it to a user who is using Word in Windows and they will be able to read it?
    First of all, OpenOffice is pre-installed in Fedora and you dont have to install separately. It doesn't matter where you have saved OpenOffice document because Fedora supports NTFS/FAT32 too, you can edit/create files anywhere.

    Partition Structure depends on you only. If you ask me, I will create partitions like this
    1. C: Drive
    2. 512MB
    3. 20 GB for Fedora ( Yes, 20GB. You have a lot of disk space and you are not planning to install any other distro. I have 80GB disk and I have installed Windows XP + 6 Linux distros in it.
    4.5..... NTFS Partition for sharing data.
    I'm really having an issue with the ability to access my documents on C: with the new Fedora install.
    If I am reading this right I will have full access to my drive in Fedora and I only loose access in the Vista OS.
    You will have full access in Vista OS.


    EDIT:

    oooops ! I am using GPRS connection today and its too slow.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
