I've noticed that I don't have access to other non-linux partitions. Is there a way to access other non-linux partitions from within fedora? Also, I wanted to be logged in as an administrator to access any and all files in fedora. How do I do this? I've only had fedora up and running for a couple of hours and maybe I'm missing a few things.

In Linux distributions, it's called "mounting." You mount other partitions (NTFS, FAT32, etc.) and then have varying degrees of freedom (i.e. sometimes you can read but not write, because support for write is flaky). There're lots of resources on this forum for mounting help.
It's generally a bad idea to log in as admin because you can really do some damage. If you want to anyway, and you're in a non-root account, open a terminal and type "su".
Oh, the admin account has username "root". And you specified a password during installation.
