Trying to install Fedora on a Win95 System
Posted on 2004-04-12
I want to run Fedora on my formerly Win95 desktop.
I am a complete n00b to Linux, but I would like to break free from the grip of Gates.
This installation will be on my backup computer, in case I royally screw something up.
I'm not looking to dual boot and don't have any partitions on the current harddrive; I just want one OS - Linux.
I downloaded the 3 i386 ISOs on my main computer and will burn them to CDs and hopefully boot from CD later.
(I'm not sure if my computer can do this - its probably 8 years old; just in case I cannot, how do I make a Linux boot disk so that I can access the CDs?)
In the mean time, how do I re-format my DOS drive to Ext3?
Like I said, I really have 0 experience with Linux, but I consider myself to be fairly computer savy. If any one could give me a step-by-step process for the absolute beginer, it would be much appreciated.
