How did you get on?
Usually I've found that anaconda can handle most things that are problematic for other distros.
The only issue I've found is if you want to install fedora to an external HDD. Something which can be useful if you want to keep the special edition win XP.
Otherwise, for a newbie, I'd suggest completely removing windows and just running a linux box: avoids complications. It is also a good idea to run fdisk -l from a live distro or fedoras rescue mode to see how your drive is really partitioned, and lspci to see what cards you really have in there.
BTW: I found you doing a search in relation to another thread:
... all about that graphics accelerator chipset you have.
