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.

actually you can make new partition under the fedora core isntallation.
And basiclly, you need 2 new partition to install linux with linux filesystem format (usually ext2 or ext 3), first partition is you root (\) using ext 3, and second is swap partition with default size is 2 times your RAM (i usually set it to 1 GB)
You need to have FREE space on your disk, i.e. space not covered by the windows filesystem (NTFS or fat32, whichever you have). In other words, you need to shrink your windows partition before you start installing (this can be done using the Gparted livecd, which can be downloaded from the internet). Alternatively, if your disk is already cut up into multiple partitions, you can format one those without resizing anything.
Also , you had suggested a second partitio as swap? I do not have this option ,I have
You need to read the above too, but I thought I might go ahead and add that you need to create the swap partition, you need to tell the partitioner to create a partition of filesystem type 'swap', rather than another ext3 partition; the list you see there is filesystem mount points, which means where on your filesystem the partition will show up.
