If I understand correctly, both drives are formatted in their entirety as NTFS. Is that correct?
If so, then you will not be able to install Fedora, or anything else for that matter, without destroying data unless you wish to include new hardware such as a third hard disk. It is possible to run many Linux distributions "live", meaning from memory or a CD/DVD only. This option is still available to you and to access data from an NTFS partition you need only ensure that the kernel included in the distribution of your choice was built with NTFS support, most live distributions are, and execute a command similar to:
mount -t ntfs /some/mount/point Please note that certain distributions of
-F in place of
Another option, depending on what you wish to accomplish with Fedora, is to use VirtualBox, VMWare, or a different virtualization platform of your choice to run one or more virtual machines. This would not necessarily require that you alter your current partitioning scheme. Be sure to select a virtualization platform that will allow you to include external devices, such as your current drives
D:\, in your virtual machine(s).
