did that. Booted into windows, removed the linux partitions. booted liveCD, 
fdisk /dev/sda, nuked the sda5 that was still there, so I was left with just 
sda1 NTFS. doubled-clicked the INSTALL FEDORA icon... NOW I get to the custom 
install screen!!!!!!
so I added a 2GB swap, 15GB / ext4, and, I forget, about 35GB /home ext4. Not 
gonna get into LVM right now....
installing as we speak.
then, on to church, so I'll be away from my laptop for a while:)
