Smile How to run Fedora alongside Microsoft Windows

I see on the Fedora website the text "Fedora is a Linux-based operating system, a suite of software that makes your computer run. You can use the Fedora operating system to replace or to run alongside of other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows™ or Mac OS X™. The Fedora operating system is 100% free of cost for you to enjoy and share."
Ok great having said that I have tried to go through this to install this on to my toshiba satelite laptop C650 and cant quite grasp the proscess.....having said this im so used to Ubuntu wubi installer for windows. is there something siliar for Fedora ? if not what do I do to have fedora run alongside windows ? will this be easy ? will it provide me with a similar boot option to either boot windows or boot Fedora ? also can I easily delete the Fedora like another program from windows like the Ubuntu wubi installer for windows ?
Thanks all in advance any one who has an answer for me much appreciated...

Here is the link which tells you about step by step installation of Fedora alongside Windows:

And yes it will provide you similar boot option to select Windows or Fedora.

I hope this helps.
