    Welcome to the board, lampard

    The installation routine in Fedora will give you the option to setup separate partitions along side your WinXP partitions. I usually make my own rather simple partition scheme something like this:

    / about 6 to 8 gigs (ext3)
    swap about 512 megs
    /home about 6 to 8 gigs (ext3)

    Different users have different reasons for making them bigger or smaller, or for using a different file system, so you'll need to decide what you want to start out with.

    Hope this helps.
