Which version and how to install Fedora Core 6 on fairly new Dell laptop?
I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 the processor is Intel Duo Core CPU T2300 1.66GHZ, processor speed is 1.62GHZ, Ram 512, Hard drive 75GB. I am trying to mulitboot Windows 2003 Server, Windows Media Center (XP pro) and I want to install Linux 8.0 on it. When I do this install it works on the Dimension Pentium IV desktop but when I try to do this install on this laptop the Linux installation won't complete. On the laptop it allows me to get as far as installing the Windows 2003 server and the Windows XP and it even lets me "start" the Linux installation even pass using the autopartition and setting all of the settings but after that when it starts formatting the Linux partitions it slows down, then when it tries to copy the image to the hard disk it gets up to 12% of it down and then gets stuck there and won't go any further. The error message says there might not be enough space on the hard drive but actually I give it the same space allocation and other configuration for the installation on the laptop hard drive as I gave the installation on the desktop hard drive which is 30GB! Can anybody tell me why I can't complete the Linux installation on this Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop? I was told to download Fedora because Redhat Linux 8.0 is old and may not recognize the new laptops hardware so I went to the Redhat website but the site must be having a problem presently because the download won't complete. Once the Fedora site fixes their problem, based on my laptop configuration that I described should I download the i386 or x86_64 version of Fedora Core 6? Once I download
Fedora Core 6 does the install use Grub so that I can continue multibooting without any problems?
