You really shouldn't install Fedora 5 anymore, even though you have a dvd ready. Fedora has extremely short support cycles of about a year, which. means that Fedora 5 has been unsupported for at least a year now. Not to mention that it is more than two years old and therefore not likely to offer the same kind of hardware support that a newer version would. I would recommend that you download Fedora 9 or any other distro you may like.

Forget Fedora all together. It is full oo so many problems. Check for descent distros.

Good Luck, Michael
