First, this question is off-topic for this list...



When you run the Fedora Core 5 installation, you will be given the opportunity 
to handle your partitioning.  You can manage the partitions however you wish, 
including erasing and replacing existing partitions as needed.  GrUB will be 
installed by default, and the system will detect your Windows XP installation 
and add it to the boot menu automatically.  By default, it will refer to that 
installation as "Other", but you'll have the opportunity to change that 
during the installation and determine which will be the default, too.  As 
always, be very careful when working on your partitioning, it is easy to 
erase partitions and leave yourself with a broken setup.  Make sure you 
review your selections carefully before completing the installation.
