Fedora uses RPM files. The difference is in the way they are packaged and where the files are put when run. Linux can read/write FAT32 and can read NTFS (limited write support). Linux use Ext3, reiserFS, Ext2 and a variety of other filesystems. Wine exists for all distributions - sometimes only in tar ball (source) form - go to or look at your repositories. Yes it support virtualisation, you implement it by installing the relevant program and following the instructions and system requirements depend on the product.

Just a quick note. Fedora uses Xen as its virtualization hypervisor. In order to make use of it, you are required to enable VT "Virtualization Technology" in your bios. All new machines have this technology. Older systems dont support it as its only been released in the last couple of years. AMD machines use a different name than VT. I cannot recall the name off the top of my head. But your bios is your place to start, if in doubt check out the manufacturers website of your machine.
