First, this question is off-topic for this list...
When you run the Fedora Core 5 installation, you will be given the opportunity
to handle your partitioning. You can manage the partitions however you wish,
including erasing and replacing existing partitions as needed. GrUB will be
installed by default, and the system will detect your Windows XP installation
and add it to the boot menu automatically. By default, it will refer to that
installation as "Other", but you'll have the opportunity to change that
during the installation and determine which will be the default, too. As
always, be very careful when working on your partitioning, it is easy to
erase partitions and leave yourself with a broken setup. Make sure you
review your selections carefully before completing the installation.
