    Installing Fedora Core 3 co-existing with Win2KPro!!!


    First of all hello to the linuxforums.org and its members.I am a new member over here with some problems.

    Well my problem is that I have a laptop with Win2K (pro edition) in it, but i want to install Fedora core 3 on it too... i.e. i want to have dual boot system.
    My laptop config is:
    30 Gb HDD with 20 GB assigned to Local drive C:
    and 10 Gb is free...with a drive name D:

    256 MB DDR RAM...

    so if possible please tell me how do i go about installing Fedora core 3 on the 10 Gb space... Please I am not expert in linux so do try to help me in a step by step procedure.I'll be thankful to the Linuxers...

    thank you.

    Remove the 10 gig partition using the windows disk manager or fdisk, boot your machine using the fedora core disk 1 and follow the instructions on the installer until you get to the disk partitioning screen. There you'll have to choice automatic partition in the next screen select keep all partitions and use free space, the next is the Boot loader configuration, defaults ok, boot menu item for Windows 2000 is autogenerated, you can choose default operating system to boot and change menu item names. And there you go!
