first do not use fedora 7 it has past it's end of life and there is NO support for 7
install fedora 8 or 9
there are two ways to install in a duel boot setup
1) use the linux grub boot loader to boot both fedora and windows
normal regular install
2) use the windows boot loader to boot both
i use method 2 it makes my life easer when dealing with Microsoft


boot, dual
