Yes but... As long as the partition is formated ext2/3 of vfat your ok. I assume FC3 is no different then FC2. The other problem is that due to the size of the kernel there isn't a boot floppy image anymore. Fedora provides an boot image for CD or USB drive.
So you might have to burn the 1st CD anyway.
