Linux isn't intended to be run under windows. While the software just listed *might* work acceptably, running Fedora alone is the best way to run the OS.

Fortunately, that's not as bad as it might sound - if you use a tool like Partitionmagic to partition your harddrive, then install to a new partition, you can install Fedora to run entirely seperately from Windows, without destroying your existing data.

I am trying to do the something. Does anyone have a step by step instruction on how to do this?

I want to able to run both OS at the same time. I already have Windows XP Pro Edition. Do I just install the VMware player and then install Fedora? If anyone knows how to do this please help.

I have tried to run FC5 on vmware it does not work out all that well. Granted it was about 6 months ago and maybe the makers of VMWare have added suport for newer distros but if it bombs out on you dont be suprised. just create a duel boot it wil be so much easier. or just say to hell with xp.

Best way is Vmware, but you'll need to have the full Vmware pro to create a virtual machine. The player will only allow you to open previously created VM's. Check Vmwares site though, they have alot of Virtual machines that are pre-created. If you are looking for a quick way to run linux inside of windows try DSL (damn small linux) they have a 128MB distro, which I carry on a USB drive that can boot in windows or another linux distro!
