Installation of Fedora Red Hat Core 2
I am a fresher to the Linux world and need a little advice. I have a little experience in working on other Unix platforms, though not Linux.
My boss recently asked me to download Red Hat Core 2 and install it on my computer here and configure the machine as a dual boot.
I have 1GB RAM and an 80GB hard disk. Currently though, Windows XP Professional is installed on the machine and is entire 80GB is formatted as a single NTFS partition. It was pre-installed. SP1 is also installed on the machine.
I accessed the Fedora Web site and downloaded the 4 discs in the .iso formats. Actually, there were about 8 links there, and I am slightly confused...the ones that I downloaded had a SRPMS tag to it. Is it the right one or is the the other ones that I should have downloaded?
My other major problem is my partitioning. I want to create the partition for my Linux, without reinstalling my XP. Is this possible? If the answer is yes, how should it be done and are there any free partitioning tools that are available for this job..?
I appreciate all your suggestions in this....
Regards and Cheers,
