Which one should I use?
Also I see there is an F7 from Jan 2008, so they keep updating F7 even after F8 is officially released?
If you use jigdo to fetch and create the images you will be given a choice of 24 different iso's for 3 different architectures-i386-x86_64 and ppc. Then from the choices you can have the option of creating CD's or a DVD.
What I have done is create a Jigdo directory in home and then openeed a terminal within that directory as a regular user and entered:
Then after a bit of downloading the templates you should be presented with a screen of 24 choices that you choose one at a time. Here's the choices:
Images offered by `http://jigdo.fedoraunity.org/templates/20080204/Fedora-Unity-20080204-8.jigdo':
Number of image to download:
enter the number of the image you want and it will begin downloading. It may take a while depending on your connection speed and also on the speed of where a package may be located. Be patient.
Fedora Project maintains any particular release of Fedora for a month after final release of the second following release. For example, Fedora 8 will be maintained until a month after Fedora 10 is released. Since new releases of Fedora occur approximately every 6 months, this translates into approximately 13 months of updates for every release. This schedule allows end users to optionally skip every other release and directly upgrade from Fedora N to Fedora N+2 release.
