Installing Fedora Core 4 from XP


Hi all , I have a installation problem here .

I used Windows XP in my other computer and decide to install Fedora Core 4 there.

My HD is 200GB so I have 7 disk partition . My problem and question is :

How do i keep all 7 partition to be used in fedora ?

All 7 partition are NTFS Format. But I already install Fedora into 1 partition which is the system partition ( which is C:\ ) .

I know that I have to re-format one partition for Fedora to install. That is okey because thats like C:\ in XP. But I dont want to lose my other disk partition which is all my data. ( ie : school work , music , etc )

I installed Fedora Core once but when I check the HD , there only 1 partition there , which is the system .

I checked and there was only 1 HD , floppy and cd rom.

Many thanks in advance.

mount -t <filesystemtype> <location of the partition> <monut point>
example
mount -t vfat /dev/hda5 /mnt/d_drive
this will mount my fat partition which is /dev/hda5 to a directory /mnt/d_drive
i can access the file by
cd /mnt/d_drive
