the installer will normally let you manually set up the partitions. If you let it do it automatically, then I think it simply takes the whole disk.

You can re-size the existing partition, and then create new ones in the empty space. Re-sizing must be done from "outside" the partition to be re-sized--eg from the live CD or other bootable Linux CD.

The Fedora7 CD (or DVD) should have a tool like Gparted or QTParted.

You can also simply re-install, select manual partitioning, and set things up the way you want.

The "getting started" link below will take you to some more stuff on partitions.

first, let's be clear about the objective: You want to create one or more new partitions---yes?

Boot the computer from the Fedora CD or DVD, select "Live Linux, "Run from CD" or something similar. When it is up and running, look in the menus for something that does partitions--it might say simply "disk management". Let us know what you find.

If you get stuck and don't get help here quickly enough, download "GParted" and burn to CD:
