I have been wanting to try an rpm based distro (Redhat) out just for kicks and giggles for a while now and just never have. So I'm currently downloading the latest copy of Fedora (cause I'm poor) but heres my problem. I dual boot and I have really bricked the sh.. outta my linux install but my windows side is in great shape. So what I plan on doing is deleting the linux partition and installing fedora but should I delete the grub partition too and lose my bootloader for windows in the process and edit grub after the install of fedora (seems really redundant to me) Or will fedora's install of grub pickup that I have windows setting there (w/o a bootloader) and add it's entry to grub for me? Or will I have a working install of fedora setting there parallel to a M.I.A. windows? I could have figured this one out the hard way I guess but I figured it was worth an ask. not that you needed a pic but why not? http://usera.imagecave.com/anotherbogusname/Partitions.JPG (It appears windows view is including grub w/ swap) EDIT: got another question if anyones got an answer. I don't see Gparted in the list for fedora, no partition editor? Or different one?
