How about fedora 11


I am thinking of burning Fedora 11 iso.

Has anyone had any trouble with burning them and checksum errors.?

How can i learn Linux. any books or just trail and error.?
That is a really good question. I'm sure there are decent books, and perhaps others can name them. However, one things that works well for many is to simply latch on to whoever or whatever around them is willing to lend a hand: eg forums like this.
The other really important thing is "full immersion". Don't be tempted to jump back on the Microsoft mouse. Try to understand the OS in it's own right - don't be tempted to try understand it in terms of what you might be used to.

Hah! Unless you can provide some information about what you actually want, it's an impossible question to answer.

Cheers,

Evo2.

Thanks Alpanumeric.

I think your "impossibilities" and "full immersion" have done the trick.

Welcome mouse jockey.
evo2, please do not needlessly offend another person's personal beliefs, it will not help a newbie either.

It seems you are convinced that checksum error is in the version. No.
Fedora 11 is already stable (I suppose) and regardless of its version the checksum error is strictly due to a bad copy from the source image. So this means you must first get a flawless copy of the ISO image through error-free downloading.

Where did you get (download) the image? Be sure to download torrent files from authorized sources only, choose from here the fedora torrents you like, then read the documentations concerning the chesum gpg verification from here, and fedora specific documentations from here.

Being a newbie you should avoid the "latest" version of any distro because it is usually in the process of debugging, choose rather the next lower version which is usually already stable.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
