Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am currently running W$7 32bit, with Fedora 13 LiveDisc
I want to install Fedora 13 LiveDisc to VirtualBox. When I went to install to Hard Drive, from F13 LiveDisc I got to the point where it said "by installing you wont necessarily have your existing files deleted."
At this point it was wanting to install to my HD. I dont know if there are more choices for places to install to after agreeing to install to my HD. I didnt want to chance overwriting my W$ OS.
So then, my question is, if I continue with the install from F13 LiveDisc, to my HD, can I then navigate to VirtualBox for the install?
Well, you do actually have a choice. You could boot to the live cd and install virtualbox and then use some area on the W7 for the virtual filesystem.
I'd guess most people install Virtualbox to the W7 and run it like that. You can use the iso file to boot your VM. One of the reasons to use a VM is to protect your original install. I'd think it would be safer by doing the second way.
If your intent is, as I understand it, to run Fedora on a virtual machine within VirtualBox, and for Windows 7 to remain the OS on your "actual" hardware, then, yes, the first step will be to install VirtualBox under Windows 7.
