dual booting mac and fedora

I have Fedora on two of my computers and would really like to put it on my ibook G4. It has an airport express and I was wondering if there is a way I can keep my current mac install on the hardrive without having to reinstall mac as I dont have an install cd. Another question, does the airport express work in Fedora and if not are there drivers that I can find for it in order for it to work?

as for install, i have not got a mac yet, but i think it is possible.

dont take this as gospel but a ppc livecd with QTParted could make a partition for Linux then install the ppc version. thats how i think it can be done but i have never installed fc5_ppc.

I wouldnt rely on qtparted doing a mac drive partition properly - the only thing I would recommend for this is Apples Disk Utility, which would require a reinstall. By all means, try qtparted - but make sure you do a backup of any important data first!
