I have arrived!
I actually did it!
I purchased the book Red Hat Fedora wich came with a installation DVD. I had an old Gateway I was not using, so I wiped the hard drive clean. Inserted the Fedora installation DVD and got started.
All of my installation mistakes were answered in the book that I purchased, but eventually I got it right.
I am now up and running LINUX.
I feel like I am technically superior to Bill Gates!
