how to retrieve a disk having windows from fedora

i installed fedora11 in a partition on which the ubuntu was installed by selecting install on earlier installed linux partition option
but fedora has taken entire harddisk under it so i m not able to load windows:-(

i know i would have gone by using manual option but is there any way to retrieve back the hard disk partition from fedora11.

thank u

You have to resize the fedora partition and install windows to the empty space.
But first - make sure that fedora has really taken over the whole drive ... how did you determine this?

OR you could take it as a sign to finally ditch windows for good?
