Fedora will now partition the hard disk that you selected for the install, and format the drive using the ext3 file system.
After the format is complete, the install image will be copied to the hard drive, and Fedora will prepare to install.
As Fedora has started the installed, you'll see a progress bar and information on what exactly is being installed across the bottom of the screen. And at the top, you'll be given information about the Fedora IRC channels, developers mailing list, and some other information.
When and if prompted, insert any other required disk. And then the Fedora install will continue.
After the install is finished, Fedora will do some post install configuration and then we'll be asked to reboot the system.
The system will reboot, and then we should see the GRUB boot loader. Select Fedora Core to boot to Fedora, or DOS (or whatever you labeled it) to boot to Windows.
