I must say fedora Core 6 has been very good to me. Nice and stable, fast booting and works better on my little dell than I had ever hoped it would.

Alas it it time to upgrade. The problem is that I have no DVD ROM nor funds to attain one. How do I download and install FC 7 or 8 then? I can't do a network install either.

I would like to stay with FC if I can.

Options? Feedback?

Does it at least have a CD burner? If so, there's a LiveCD for Gnome or KDE

Does the live CD allow installation? I prefer to have FC installed - Live CDS are nice but time consuming and hard on the old CD ROM...

Yes, it does, but it doesn't include OpenOffice, if I remember, so that has to be installed later.

You are out of luck because Fedora core no longer exists :cool: , since F7 they dropped the core from the name :) . ( it just Fedora now )
