How to create a dual-boot (dual boot) with Windows XP Home Edition and Fedora Core 5:

This dual-boot was done with one hard drive.
To see how I did a dual-boot, click here.

I decided that Fedora Core (probably all versions) sucks for setting up a Broadcom wireless card. Maybe I suck, but I know Windows is the fastest method for using the Internet. I reformated the HDD and reinstalled windows probably 50 minutes ago. Nonetheless, I'm still interested in it for programming languages and etc. I tried programming on Windows long ago and it didn't go as well as I hoped. That's why I'm going to dual-boot with XP and Fedora.

I reinstalled XP home back onto the HDD. I want to dual-boot with Fedora using the GRUB loader. I've been reading about this QTparted thing--it's really interesting. It seems some things have changed since I messed with linux during the summer of 2005.

However, I don't know if QTparted was included on the DVD version download of FC5 or not, so I decided to download the most recent edition of Knoppix. I figure I'll boot into Knoppix and use QTparted to create some partitions. I assume the process is the same despite me using Knoppix, but how do I go about creating a dual-boot?

1. I want to keep Windows XP home.
2. I want to partition the HDD for FC5
3. I want to put FC5 onto the HDD.
4. I want to have a dual-booting option everytime I start the computer.

How do I accomplish this?
