but on windows all my drives seem to have NTFS format, including the drive where fedora is installed.
So I can not make use of this driver
I'm pretty sure that linux can't be installed on a NTFS partition... There used to be a version of slackware that you could install on a fat partition, but it didn't go far.
In linux, open up a command line and as root, enter:
fdisk /dev/hda (assuming hda is your disk)
once the fdisk prompt comes up, type in P and hit enter.
Copy and paste the output of this here for us to read, maybe someone can help you a little better.
Once you're done with the fdisk prompt, type in Q and hit enter to quit.
