There are ways of checking the bios settings and of booting "special" CD's to
make these determinations.  However, it won't do you much good to find out when
you don't know what to do with the information once you have it.  (And you have
demonstrated an inability to accept good advice and to follow directions,
unfortunately.)

Well, there you go then.  That's what Anaconda is for, so do a new installation
and let Anaconda do its stuff.  Get F7 up and running, be happy and go about
your business.
