Fine. Fedora and RH5 don't have the same binaries and such, so other
than sharing /boot and the swap, you really need enough free disk space
(e.g. a partition) to install Fedora into. If you used LVM, you may be
able to shrink your existing RH5 installation to free up space for the
Fedora partition.

Post the output of "fdisk -l" and the output of both
"mount" and "df -h"
so we can see just what your system has going on.

> 2) I want to have the option to boot into Fedora or the RH5 in GRUB

Fine. Entries in
/boot/grub/grub.conf can handle that. The Fedora
entries will need to specify the new partition as the "root="
parameter
to the kernel line.

> 3) I have a 1024MB swap in RH5 can I used it in Fedora? or It need another
1024MB swap

Swap is swap. Yes, it can be used in both.

> 4) I have a 100MB boot in RH5 can I used it in Fedora? or It need another
100MB boot

If there's enough room in /boot to handle the Fedora kernels and initrd
images along with the RH5 kernels and initrds, yes, it can be used.
