I didn't get this. Do you mean to say that boot menu is giving three options:

FC8
FC8-Base
XP

If yes, whats the issue? If not, Please elaborate.

replace windows with current revision Fedora

I am replacing windows with current revision fedora. Customer wants security in his OS. I still have to look at the machine. Is it 64 bit? Do the chips have thermal compound. This is what I'm finding in the local area.

We have no idea about what the machine is at your customer site...how could we, when you haven't told us anything about it. As far as what the chips have on them, again...how do you expect us to know? Open it up and look, but 99.xxx% of machines are going to have heat-sinks attached, and they'll ALL use thermal compound...which doesn't matter AT ALL, to ANY operating system.

Get your machine specs, and read the manual that came with it..that will tell you if it's 64 bit or not. Download the latest version of whatever Linux you choose from the Internet, burn it to a DVD, boot from it, and perform the installation. Very little difference over installing Windows...it'll prompt you for things, so fill in the blanks. Format the disk when asked, and that's it.
