I suppose that you want to dual-boot with windows. So, first, I think you should check out the condition of your partitions to see if you have any free space left.
Put in the installation disk of Fedora Core 2(FC2 from now on). When you get to the screen of "choosing partition to install"(I am not sure about this since I havent do a installation of FC2 for a long time, but I think it is something like this), don't use the automatic ones but choose the manual partitioning.
Now you should be presented by a graph showing you the condition of your harddisk. See if there is any free space left for you to install FC2. FC2 cannot be installed in NTFS/FAT partition but ext2/ext3 ones. So, if you don't have free space left on your harddisk, search for the way to resize your windows partition. I can't help you there coz I havent done that before.
In the case that you *DO* have free space in your harddisk, select the free space and create some partitions from it. You need at least two partition to install a linux distro, one for the root where all your files reside, and one for the swap(a virtual memory). Note that you don't need too much space for the swap partition. Usually its size should double the size of the physical memory that you have.
Perhaps you should search for some documentations on how to install FC2 before you continue.
Ask if you have any more questions.
