Fedora Core 4 is really old, you should try Fedora 8 it is the current version and you will probably have more luck with it

install curent Fedora release

Unless you have a very specific reason why to use Fedora 4 (other than having those install CD's at hand) you should really use a current version of Fedora. Dual Core processors were not common at the time when Fedora 4 was new (about 4 years ago), so you shouldn't expect them to be supported by older kernel builds.

It is also possible to start with a Fedora 4 installation, and then upgrade using "yum upgrade" directly from the Internet. But in the end this will lead to the same results as installing the current Fedora release, only that it will take more efforts.

Using Fedora 4

I agree I think you should just bite the bullet and Download
Fedora 8 or The New 9
The older versions doesn't support the same type of hardware
you would expect
I would Install the Linux first because when you install the
Windows it Rewrites the MasterBoot record


Hope that helps

You want windows to be installed first because if it overwrite the MBR then you can't access linux
