I was planning 2 OS systems on my laptop. One is already installed which is Win7 and second one that i need to install is fedora. Is it that if i install fedora there will be a degradation in the performance when i work with windows 7 and even fedora ? I won't install fedora in the virtual machine but by partitioning the hard drive.

I have 4GB RAM and a 32 bit processor.

If you mean dual booting Fedora and Windows they will operate entirely independently of each other and so will have no performance affect on each other.

You will have a menu at boot to select which one to use.
