    By default, I believe Fedora will leave any Windows XP installations alone. Wipe the harddrive you don't want before trying Linux. It'd probably be best if you booted into the XP installation you wanted and wiped the other drive from there. I'm quite sure it wouldn't be able to erase the drive with the running XP install on it, so that way you can make sure you're erasing the one you want. From there, install Fedora. Make sure to check what it's going to do to your disks before you commit. Like I said, I think it will leave Windows alone and add an entry in the bootloader config for it.

    By the way, it's a fairly simple matter to restore the XP bootloader if grub screws up and you NEED to get back to Windows. Pop in the XP CD, boot from it, and go to the rescue console. Run the fixboot and fixmbr commands. Then you can try installing Fedora again .
