Hi,

I have a friend that is using a box I setup for him several years ago with RedHat 7.2.  I think he would really like FC and would like to send him a hard drive with already installed, as he is not an OS/Hardware guy.  

Is it possible for me to install an IDE drive in my machine ( Pentium 486 D ) and load FC4 on it in a generic enough for that will run on his older, probably Pentium II machine?

If everything is modular, won't the initrd be incorrect?  Can I force the installation to use a generic IDE driver?

Thanks
Todd
