    Installing Fedora 1?


    Hey im new to the linux community and i have one question.

    I have 2 harddrives. one 40 gig with my windows XP on and one 13 gig on in which i want to put Fedora on.

    During the installation how can i be sure that Linux gets put on the second harddrive? and how can a make sure i reboot using that harddrive instead of the other one when i want to use Linux only?

    I bought the Linux for dummies and they give me 3 choices.
    Remove all Linux partitions on this system
    Remove all partitions on this system
    Keep all partitions and use existing free space.

    Im guessing to use #3 but would this automatically put this on the cleared 13 gig hd?

    Thank you for the help.

    Yep.
    If it doesn't, just format your 2nd drive as "free space" and you'll be fine

    PS: Fedora will not delete anything unless you tell it to do...

    when you install linux it will install the GRUB boot loader, which will ask you what OS to boot when you start your computer

    just make sure that windows was installed first

    it doesn't matter what drive your OSs are on
