Delete Windows, you'll have plenty of space afterwards. That's what I did when I found out that I hadn't used Windows in almost a year ;-) – vonbrand Feb 25 '13 at 2:38

Boot into any Linux live CD with a partition editor and resize the partitions. Your Fedora installation disc should come with GParted. (If it doesn't, you can always just sudo yum install gparted.)

Don't create a new partition. Resize your existing partition. – Ryan O'Hara Dec 12 '12 at 15:03
