I normally make my windows partition the first one by doing the
windows install and allocating how much space for it. Then I do the FC
install and let it auto pick the partitions and sizes during install
of the remaining free space. I think on my 80G laptop drive I
allocated 20G to Windows and 60G to Linux. My partitions are like this
I think.

/dev/hda1 20G primary
/dev/hda2 100M /boot primary
/dev/hda3 60G logical which is LVM by default and I left that alone.
/VolGroup00 59G /root
/VolGroup01 1G swap

If you want more details, I can boot it up and find out for sure for you.
