I downloaded all the 4 Fedora Core 2 CD ISO and burned them before I finally learn that I downloaded them and burned them for nothing. The computer I wish to use to run Fedora Core 2 can't boot with a bootable CD and doesn't have any USB ports.
And please don't ask me to download Fedora Core 1, burn it, install it and then connect it to an ftp server... I have a quote that I like :
Don't work much or stronger, just work smarter.
So, what the hell the Fedora Core 2 boot media contains that the Fedora Core 1 doesn't contains? Are you sure that all this stuff is not optional for people like me?
All I have here is :
- One Red Hat 7.2 setup floppy
- The 2 CD needed to install Red Hat 7.2
- The 4 CD needed to install Fedora Core 2
- A Pentium Pro 180 MHz with 64 MB of EDO RAM, a floppy drive, a CD-ROM drive, a 3 GB hard drive, a 1.5 GB hard drive and a 56 k modem.
- The computer of my friend which I can use to browser the web, download SOME stuff and write SOME CD.
- All the stuff I need to reinstall Windows 98 on my Pentium Pro 180 MHz.
So what can/should I do to have a RECENT (NOT Red Hat 7.x) Linux distribution running on my computer (I thought that the latest Red Hat free distribution "Fedora Core 2" could be nice, I used Red Hat 7.2 at home and at work for the last 2 years. I can download an other CD-ROM set, but this set MUST be the good one...
