    Fedora's Installer creates three partition /boot, / (root), and swap. did you create partitions manually before installation? leave unpartitioned/free space and check if installer creates swap partition automatically.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    i've installed fedora core 3 in d:\ because i had windows in c:\ and i didn't leave unpartitioned space but it was installed properly without any problem
    1st i created the /boot as 100M
    2nd /swap as 512 because my memory was 256
    finally the root ( / ) took all the rest
    without any problem


    in fedora core 6
    i created the /boot
    after that i didn't find the swap in the options
    so how can i do as before
    1st /boot (ok)
    2nd swap ( i didn't find it i found "/home , /usr , /local ....... )
    so which choice should i choose
    3rd / (root ok)

    so can u tell me how can i install it step by step (just the partition part)

    post your existing partition structure here.
    if Fedora 3 is still installed, execute fdisk -l and post output here else execute 'diskmgmt.msc' at Windows Command Prompt.
