Not quite.

I blew away the big windows partition, but I left the Dell system and
recovery partitions. Which equates to about 15 gig of space.

I imagine if I blew away those partitions too, then Fedora 18 would
install. But I do like keeping the Dell stuff around, for emergencies.

So with 100+ gig of free space and 2 system partitions, Fedora did not install.

Yep. Multiple times.

This is on the "main" installer screen in F18.

fdisk -l shows two partitions (Dell system and recovery).
