Researching the install of Fedora and WinXP
I found this page at a Linux on Thinkpads ring site http://www.phys.cwru.edu/~covault/linux_fedora_core3_x23.html I read most of the page. I would have to buy partition magic for this method and this guy kept his original WinXP because he did not want to buy XP. So two differences in my senario. I have a copy of WinXP from school that my tuition has paid for and two I am installing on a new hard drive. But I also learned from this web page that Fedora core is an easy OS to install on a Thinkpad in terms of drivers for the various Thinkpad parts.
