downloaded isos and burnt fedora core 2 install disks last night – the plan is to resurrect my former redhat 8.0 box (that I stole disk and RAM out of of for failed build of new dual boot box). I have been undecided recently which linux distro to go with – somebody demonstrated fedora to me the other day and was particularly impreswsed that you can use debian apt-get thing to keep packages up to date, so this is the one i’m going for.
Machine in shed in bits though…. and time limited!
I feel it is justified as I need at least one spare machine and I need to keep myself fluent with *nix
