Here's an excellent tutorial for that question and for most of the other ones you'll have during setup: http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...l#Installation

Hi,

When you install fc4 it will load its bootloader into the boot partition of the XP hard drive and when the machine boots you press <Enter> at the prompt to see the boot menu.
