Fedora Core is a distribution developed by a community of developers sponsored by RedHat. Fedora is the descendant, so to speak, of RedHat's distribution for individual users, which they stopped selling a few years ago. Applying the reverse of the Star Trek curse, I usually skip the even numbered Fedora Core releases. And since Fedora Core 5 was just released, and 5 being an odd number, I give you my customary combination how-to/review of this latest Linux distribution.
