me,

find

was a

> I then started the Fedora install with 3 the CDs. Fedora detected
everything
> on the notebook, defaulted to 1024 x 768 with millions of colours,
installed
> Win2K in the grub boot screen and just... well... worked!

> I am SO impressed by this and it has been a great pleasure *finally*
getting a

> Now I just have to get my wife onto Fedora and it will be a consummate
