Are you really sure you can do that?

The Vista CD you have included with your shiny machine is, most likely, a
castrated "rescue CD" that merely copies over the original Vista install
image off a hidden, extra partition.  I'd be surprised if it even gave you
an option of choosing your partition layout.  More than likely it just wipes
everything clean and sets up an entire disk-spanning partition, again.

This is a Vista DVD and it seems like the complete Vista is on it.

Currently I am trying the rescuecd but, although it boots ok, it won't
startx, so I cant do gparted - yet.

Make me wonder if Fedora might also have gui problems on this.
