I did have a crash the first time I tried to install, I tried to install extra packages from the disc, and crashed on disc 5. I installed again, and this time installed the "default" installation, and added the packages afterwards using the package manager, and everything went fine.
I'll Be truthful, I haven't had much of an oppurtunity to look around in this os yet, but what I've seen so far its really nice! I was beginning to get a litte tired of Fedora 4, all the rpm dependancy problems I would run into, trying to install stuff. On my other computer I installed Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy", and truthfully have been very excited about that distro, and preffered using that machine (old HP Pavilion 6630, 500mhz Celeron, 256mb ram), and had considered moving away from Fedora all together, and put Ubuntu on the main machine (Compaq Presario SR1426NX, 2.93ghz Pentium 4, 1.5gb ddr2 sdram), but the kids talked me into giving FC5 a whirl, and I'm glad they did! FC5, I am getting excited about, lots of nice stuff, and seems to run faster on this machine than FC4 did

As you probably have seen from the number of posts on dual booting and FC4, FC4 has been giving folks fits with dual booting. I should have the board in Friday next and be able to test it over the weekend.

If possible start a new topic and post the following, since this thread is not specific for your problem;
1. Did you install Fedora after Windows?
2. Is Fedora installed on the same hard drive as Windows?
3. What exacrly happens when you try to boot into Windows?
4. When you installed Fedora, what disk space did you tell Fedora to take? In other words, did you tell Fedora to take space away from the Windows partition, use already empty space on the hard drive, or have a partition already set up for Linux?
5. Where did you tell Fedora to install the Grub bootloader?
6. The exact make and model of your computer. Yes, this can make a difference.
Answering these questions will help to troubleshoot your particular problem.
