I would like to install WinXP SP2 & FC3 (dual OS). When i tried to install
WinXP, but it reported that there was no HDD. I tried to install FC3 too
but it reported the same problem.
Could anyone help please.
Windows is reporting no HD because it does not understand the EXT2 or EXT3
file system. What you need to do is down load a live distro or the cd version
of Gparted, boot up with it and make some space on the hard drive. If you
really want m$ xp and Fedora then install xp first then install Fedora. By
the way FC3 is a bit out of date why not FC 6 or F7?. Before you do any of
that make a note of the hard ware manufacturers, network chips, blue tooth
and web cam chips.
