You need separate partitions for Fedora to be able to install it. It is not sufficient to have unallocated space. Fedora's default installation would, at least, need 2 partitions, one for /boot and the second for an lvm managed partition.

Hello manoz,

To me at least, it's not clear what you "dont get". What's wrong? Exactly. Or, describe more precisely what is happening up to the moment it fails to proceed.

Actually, the Fedora installer (aka Anaconda) is capable of creating partitions for Fedora completely by default and without any input from you at all. However, if you do not want the default partition layout, then you must choose "Create custom layout" from the drop down list of partitioning options in Anaconda. If you do that, then the very next page is the so-called "disk druid". It's a kind of partition manager where you can create custom partitions for Fedora.

If you are having trouble creating new partitions for fedora, then are you sure that your partition table can accomodate more partitions? You mentioned two existing partitions. But there could be hidden partitions that you forgot about or never knew about. A legacy hard drive can have only four partitions in the partition table of the master boot record. This issue happens all the time. Take a moment to look at the Disk Management utility in Windows 7. You can even post a screenshot of it here. I, for one, am always interested in seeing anything that helps to illustrate and explain a situation.

I recommend that you start a new thread in the networking forum for that issue. The title of this thread is not relevant to that subject. If you agree with that and start a new thread, I also recommend that you explain more about the hardware. For example, make it clear in that new thread whether that modem is a broadband cable modem or a DSL modem or a dial-up modem. Make it clear whether or not a router is connected somehow (usually between the modem and the NIC).

Finally, for the wireless part of that, Dell computers are well-known to use Broadcom wireless cards that are usually easy to set up in Fedora. For the wireless issue, always start by identifying the wireless chipset with the terminal command lspci. If that reveals that the wireless Network Controller is using a Broadcom chipset, then try reading the Broadcom wireless HOWTO. It might help you set up the wireless up by yourself. But if you have questions or problems with what you read in the HOWTO, don't ask questions in the HOWTO. Instead, return to or start your new thread for help. Clearly describe what you tried and what you are observing up to the moment it fails to work.

P.S.: Wired NIC connections almost always "just work" in Fedora. If you mean that you cannot browse the Internet with your wired NIC connected, then that may be be a Firefox configuration issue and not a network connection issue. Try pinging a URL and then an IP address in the terminal. If you can ping a URL, then search the forum for the network.dns.disableIPv6 issue in Firefox. If you can ping only IP addresses, then it may be a DNS resolution issue that might be fixed with nameserver IP addresses. Search the forum for "DNS resolution" and "DNS nameserver".

P.P.S.: Sometimes Google is a better way to search fedoraforum.org. For example, try these in the Google textbox...
"dns resolution" site:fedoraforum.org
"dns nameserver" site:fedoraforum.org
I also like to refine the Google searches like that to a more recent time frame.
