Okay, so I have a new laptop running Windows 7. I want to keep this OS and put Fedora on as well. I shrunk the partition for Windows, leaving 150 GB of unallocated space. Should I create the partitions Fedora suggests on that now, and then run the installation, or run the installation and have it install Fedora on that unallocated space?

I would just start the fedora installer and:

Select "use unpartitioned/unused space" in the installer when it show up.

Check the "inspect partition layout" checkbox in the bottom so you can see what it will do and make changes if you feel any are needed.
