I want to install Fedora 20 from a full DVD (not live) on a new computer, with as much software as I can; so, during the set up for the installation, I tick all the repositories offered and then find that I need more space than is available. The machine was partitioned by the vendor, and Windows XP3 installed, so I will use a dual boot. I think the partitions he left me with are biased by his disdain for, or ignorance of, Linux.
I include a picture of the partitions from Windows on this machine; the C: partition is only 5% full, so it should cover the little I will use it for. So my question is: please, how do I make the rest available for Linux? I don't fully understand the jargon around partitions, in Linux or Windows, so I am extremely nervous about getting it wrong and losing Windows entirely. Needless to say I have aborted all my attempts at installing F20 so far.
It may be that I could use the repositories on the DVD after installation, but would I not then come up against the same space problem?
(Following on from @Anthon's comment) If, in Windows, I delete partitions E: and F: ( I have no data on them), will that affect my use of the Linux and Windows in the remaining partitions, until I install a new Fedora in place of the existing one, and then will the deleted partitions be automatically be included into Linux? How will I recognise them, if necessary, in the list during installation? Please forgive my fussy ignorance, I always get to a point in an attempt at installation, where there is something that I do not understand, even with the help of the installation instructions viewed on my laptop, and have to abort and start again, so I want to be fully prepared for these dangerous actions.
