Hi just installed fedora 11 on my usb drive had to wipe everything off it just to install, install is finshed and I need to put back on a partition so I can use it as the os and storage device " device readable in windows"
How do I do this?

gparted, kparted are good. gparted has a bootable cd iso on their website:
should have added: yum install gparted

thanks for the reply,
will that cause any problems with my vista hard drive?

It shouldn't. Gparted has a good help system with step-by-step instructions for creating, shrinking partitions. One "gotcha" is that Linux partitions must be unmounted before they can be altered, which is why the bootable cd is useful.
Edit: I don't use it, but I have read that Vista now has good software to shrink itself and create free space.

Tried gparted it doesn't give any option to let me do anything but delete, it says the logical drive is not supported the disc type is LMV2 linux set this at install.
