Installing Kali Linux on Boxes

I am using Fedora 18. I wanted to install Kali Linux using the Boxes virtual machine. When I get to the installation section, I have to choose whether to install using the entire hard drive. If I choose this option, am I correct in assuming that it is the VIRTUAL hard drive that will be used for installation, and not the physical one? I don't want to mess up and lose Fedora!

that would be this "boxes"

that accesses already installed VM install

if you are trying to install kali into that
you will wipe out your fedora install

if you have the 8 to 12 gig needed space why bother using a vm
dual boot
kali only needs 8 gig min 12 to 16 is good

Thanks John :-) I had thought of installing it on my hard drive. However, I have Fedora 18 installed to dual boot with my Windows 7. Fedora is managing my / /home and swap with a logical volume manager. For the life of me, I can't work out how to reduce it's size and add more partitions to the hard drive using Gparted.

Does anyone know how to use Gparted to add extra partitions to a hard drive which is being managed by a logical volume manager (lvm) ?
