Configure dual boot on nx9420

Hi,
I have a nx9420 with a 100GB sata drive.
I reinstalled Win XP and created 2 partition (75 and 25 GB, both visible on WinXP disk manager.
But when I try to install FedoraCore5 or any other Linux distro, it sees only one huge partition of about 100GB.
I would like to have both Linux and WinXP running on this system
Any help more than welcome.
Regards

Have you tried Debian Etch, the latest netinst iso burnt on to a CD? It has SATA support.

Re: Configure dual boot on nx9420

Thanks to both of you for your help, but I found the solution myself.
I booted on fedora, used linux rescue at boot.
Then using parted, I deleted the 25G partition.
Reboot in normal fedora. The 25GB were now in the status free, so I could install fedora there and it runs like hell.
Quite easy after all.
