Thanks Mara,

I will probably wait until the weekend before I try, and I just found out I may be able to get a blank HD to put it on so it may not matter.

1. what u really need is only the first disk as it contains the core os the other 2 disk are just add on's in the form of rpms. the two disk containing SRPM's u will not require now if ur new to linux. just stick to the first 3 disk as it is much eaiser to do a default install for the first time.
2. partitioning is a fairly easy process with the disk driud & its gui. stick to this if u are not comfortable using the console fdisk.


To follow the path:
look to the master,
follow the master,
walk with the master,
see through the master,
become the master.
