Fedora 7 download for CDs


I have an old laptop that I would like to run Linux on.

I have a book and DVD of Fedora 7 but the laptop has a CD drive. I have tried to breakdown the DVD to CDs but some directories are biger than a CD.

Thanks for any leads.

I would not even think to run Fedora 7 on anything. It is way outdated and not supported for a long time. If you can tell us the hardware specs of that machine we can give you recommendations which distribution to choose and how to install it.

With a machine like that I would try the Wary edition of Puppy Linux, Slitaz or antiX. All of them should work fine and fit on a CD.
