How to install Fedora 10 using VirtualBox on Vista Home Basic?

I have installed VirtualBox latset version 3.0.4 on Vista Home Basic. Now would like to install Fedora 10 inside VirtualBox.

I changed floppy settings/image file and provided location of image file as \isolinux\initrd0.img saved on my USB Flash and started the virtual machine but the screen goes blank instead of starting the Fedora 10 installation as I expected.

Can anybody provide me the correct steps please?

Please let me know if any other information is required.

Also I would like to know if I can use the existing Fedora 10 using VirtualBox inside Vista (installed alongside Vista in a separate partition in Dual Boot configuration).

Thanks in advance.

download the iso file from here (kde or gnome)
choose cd under settings and point to the iso (add iso, add the path, select, close settings and boot the virtual mashine).
if fedora runs fine in virtualbox i dont know, dual-booting on a vbox-disk aint a problem.
