If you have no unallocated space you need to either:

wipe out Windows and use the freed space (the whole partition at that point or 
the whole disk in one big partition which is common in XP)
and then decide how much space to give to each part of Linux - the installer 
will do a reasonable job if you take the defaults.


resize (shrink) an existing partition to free up some space and install Fedora 
alongside XP, then pick at start up time which you want to use. This is 
called "dual booting" The installer won't resize an XP partition but there 
are programs that will.

If you say which way you'd like to go we can help some more.
