fedora with vista

I have a laptop with 2 NTFS partitions. I have Vista Ultimate on the first one and I want to install Fedora 6 on the second one.
How can I do that?

Note that you won't have a very good time installing Linux on an NTFS partition. You need to delete it and create Linux partitions for the system (you'll be able to do this with the Fedora installer, just don't delete the wrong partition by mistake ).
