Re: Fedora newbie question

Mornin' Doc-

I'm guessing that Linux is detecting the Windows installation as occupying the
entire 60 gigs of the drive and isn't able to install.  I'm going to delete all
partitions and reformat/reinstall Windows XP on a 20 gig partition and see if
that helps.

Thanks for the advice!
