A newbie’s guide to Fedora 12

So, the first step is to download Fedora and burn it to a DVD. To do that, visit http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora and choose the right version for you. If you aren’t too sure which version is the right one for you, download this one. Now put your newly burned DVD in the drive. After inserting and booting the machine, the first screen you’ll see is the Fedora boot menu. You need to choose the first option, “Install or upgrade an existing system”. In some rare cases, you may find that your computer is unable to progress any further. Before asking your questions on online forum, try the second option in the boot menu. This will use a failsafe graphics card driver and this should enable most people to get problematic machines up and running.Guide to Fedora 12
