Dell laptops can be a little tricky to dual boot, because the partition table is already full. One method is to reduce the main Vista OS partition, delete the MediaDirect partition (at the end of the drive), resize the (now empty) extended partition (all can be done from Vista Disk Manager, note that reducing OS will be limited due to position of page file etc) and install Fedora in the newly resized extended partition eg see
