Which version of same distro to install?


First, thanks to all for the lq etiquette info that I requested. Now I know what not to do.

Anyway, I have decided on a new distro to install, but they have two sets of iso images:

FC4-i386-disc<1-4>.iso.part
and
FC4-i386-SRMPS-disc<1-4>.iso.part

I don't know the difference, or which set to burn.
Any advice?

For a standard install, use the FC4-i386-disc<1-4>.iso

Hi,

You should download the non-SRPMS ones - they're the ones you're looking for. Also, might I suggest that you go for the FC4 DVD? It's better than having to burn 4 different CDs... Either way, they're all available from the Kernel.org mirror.

Cheers,

Yes. Go with the first one. If you are asking questions like this then it's most certainly the one you want.

Just so you know why you should go for the first one, they are the images to be burnt to disk and used when installing a system.

The SRPMs are RPMs (The type of packagemanagement used by Fedora) with source code.
