what you can do is make desired ntfs partitions from XP on the second hard drive...I believe its in >Administrative Services>Computer management. Make desired size NTFS partitions so that you have some free space. Once you are done put in your fedora core 3 installation cd and then select the second hard drive for installation. Choose automatic partition scheme within that free space. Fedora installation will take care of the rest..
