Hi,

I was planning to contribute in some docs projects for students. While I was
visiting installation guide section I saw that I need to get familiar with
using 'git' if I want to contribute something to the installation guide. But
I was not sure how to install it. .

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs_Project_work_using_git#Setting_Up

Besides I am using windows vista as my operating system. Will the new
program conflict with my existing operating system?

I have no idea whether or how git is supported on Windows.  You may
want to download a free-as-in-beer virtualization program like
VirtualBox, so you can install Fedora as a guest virtual machine and
then use all the tools we provide as part of our platform.

If you find out information on using git on Windows, it would be
awesome if you just turned that into a wiki page, since you'd be
helping other contributors who come after you!

Never used it but http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/ is apparently the recommended option. Start here.
