    Do I have to format and or repartition for Fedora?


    Thanks to Ozar, I know which Fedora DVD I need. Like I said, I'm running on XP, and I would actually like to format to get rid of my files, but I don't know how to format and repartition correctly. I think I heard something about the Fedora box coming with instructions. First, do I have to format and repartition? Second, either if I do or don't, does the box come with some sort of instructions?

    Hi, again!

    The Fedora installer will automatically partition and format your drive if you choose that option. Otherwise, it has to be done manually.

    As ozar suggested already, Fedora installer let you delete/create/format partitions. But it doesn't allow resizing existing partitions. You can use PartedMagic LiveCD for that. It is one of the best partition manager.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
