Stuck w/ FC5 for about 10 months. I like it very much. I've recently installed Mandriva 2007 Free and I believe that I will likely "convert" to using Mandriva, a turn away from Fedora Core. Time will tell. I'm currently dealing with the /home/*/public_html issue (the lack of a default apache-mod_userdir seems a bit odd...).

fedora 6 booting problems

Posted 03-14-2007 at 08:38 PM by bcambo

I just installed fedora core 6 on a second hd (80 gb). I get an error message telling me "error loading operating system" with a blinking cursor. This happened just after I re-booted after I finished loading the OS. Did I make a mistake loading Linux onto only it's own hard drive? I have Windows XP with 109 Gb free on my first hard drive. I planned on having a dual-boot system and change out the hard drive and OS in my BIOS settings? Is this the best way to use two hard drives?

More Popularity does not equal More Viruses

Posted 03-13-2007 at 01:33 AM by Sepero

This is a quote from someone else, but worth repeating.

"Many people (namely, Microsoft) like to spread FUD by saying "Windows has such problems because Windows is so popular. If any other OS were as popular, it would have the same problems." This is actually not true."

"For example, there are still Amiga viruses in circulation. Even in the Wintel world, virus writers will write exploits at specific software packages that are quite rare; the...
