I don't know whether *they* do. They weren't mentioned in the message
that I replied to. You'd have to check on yours, or simply try it, to
see what options you get.
I can imagine recovery discs restoring a system to how it was when you
bought it. In my case, on an Asus system, the initial setup was a 5 gig
recovery partition, half the drive as the OS, remainder as a spare
partition. But I appear to have an ordinary Vista install disc, so I'd
expect to be asked how I wanted to set up the drive.
You can try pre-partitioning using Linux, and hoping that a Windows
install may just use already set-up partitions.
(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
important to the thread.)
