dual boot Fedora and Windows 7


Can someone point me to a resource that describes how to perform a dual boot with Fedora 11 and Windows 7?

If it makes a difference to the setup, I already have Fedora installed on the Desktop.

If you are installing Windows 7 after Fedora. Windows will not touch your Fedora Partition unless you tell it to. So leave Fedora be. Then weindows will install to your unformatted/free space partition that you made with fredora. Windows will install and wipe grub boot loader from mbr. You can get grub back to load Windows and Fedora using a http://www.supergrubdisk.org/
