If you've already installed XP, use Gparted from the Live CD to resize

The installer acts like it is going to re-size the Windows partition
if I just click on "Write changes to disk?"  I just got to that point
when I received your message.

I'm tempted to let it do it!

The action "Write changes to disk?" is not resizing the partition. It's
either going to take all of it or use available remaining disk space.
I may be wrong, but I think there's an option to install Fedora on the
remaining free space of the disk (with Win already installed).

If you don't mind spending another hour installing Win... let it go.
If you don't want to take chances, get the Live CD and it will be easier.

I dropped the keyboard on the floor and everything froze! Just got back to where I was.

It says "Any date on deleted or reformatted partitions will
be lost. I think I told it to leave the Windows part alone. I'm going to try it and see what happens ... It's not life
or death so I'll just suffer the consequences if it's a bad choice.
