View Full Version : Fedora Core 3 Installation Help for New Linux User
20th April 2005, 12:49 AM
Hello. I have recently decided to dive into the world of Linux. I would like to duel boot Redhat Fedora Core 3 with my Windows XP Pro. Windows XP Pro is all ready installed. I noticed on the Fedora Download page (32 bit) that there are a couple of download choices.
Which do I choose? Also is there a way that I can avoid burning the .iso files to disk for the installation? How do I go about setting up the Dual Boot System?
Forgive the amount of questions. I just like to know everything before going ahead and performing an operation. Thanks in advance.

You want to download the i386.iso's the others(SRPMS) are all the source packages.
If you have a partitioning software for windows (like partition magic) you can setup the partitions prior to installing. I am not sure if you can mount the iso's for install without burining.
Here is some nice info on dual booting:

Thank you for your response. I have begun to read the tutorial that you linked to. I noticed that it says to use a custom configuration when installing. I plan to be using Linux for college related purposes (Though I will also be using it for my own personal reasons). In class, we setup the drive as a Workstation. I need to have the Workstation configuration to work from home. What drawbacks are there to using the Workstation configuration, and how will it affect my Window XP Pro operating system?
Please respond if you know any answers to the questions above. I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.
