Unhappy Problem with installing Fedora Core 3


Hello, I'm a first timer in the Linux world and I'm already having troubles with installing Fedora Core 3. (Wanting to dual-boot with XP.)

First I tried getting into Knoppix to use qtparted to make partitions in my hard drive, with that I couldn't get into Knoppix. I would boot my computer with the knoppix cd in and my computer would configure what I had, then it would freeze. At first I thought it would take awhile to load since it's from the cd. So I waited for an hour. Nothing changed. So I went ahead and booted Fedora Core 3 and started going through the installation process, There was an option for using Disk Druid but I have no experience in using it so I didn't want to try. Please help.

resizing the windows partition would be most reliably done using a tool such as PartitionMagic under the Windows platform.. I don't know about resizing partitions under Fedora.... however, SuSE can easily and automatically resize the partition as well... You may want to try that. You can download the discs for either 9.3 Professional(the current 'stable' release) or the new OpenSUSE 10.0 beta release... which seems to be coming along nicely as it stands... beta 2 was just release.. check out www.opensuse.org for more info... i wish you luck with your install...whatever you choose.

Ok, I'll try that, thanks.

I do have SuSe 9.2 the problem with that is I did burn the ISO image onto a disc and try booting that. But, it would start and instead the Windows XP would start. But I will try Opensuse for a start. With Partition Magic, is it free or do I have to buy the program?

Partition Magic is not free... but you might be able to find a friend with it or something..

Cool, well I did install Fedora Core 3 over Windows XP. Right now I'm configuring my sound which Fedora can't detect since I use a Sound Blaster Audigy LS, is there some way I could make Fedora detect my soundcard?
