Ready to try Linux but want some hand-holding when you do? Here are three videos that walk you through the process of installing Fedora GNU/Linux.

Video number one steps you through the process of installing Fedora 7 to your hard drive, video number two shows you how Fedora looks and acts the first time you boot it, and video number three shows you how to install and remove software in Fedora 7. (You may also want to check out our Kubuntu 7.04 video tour.)

Linux.com video distro tours are not intended to be comprehensive tutorials. They're here to give you an idea of the look and feel of various popular Linux distributions to help you select the one you like best.

those are defective formats!

They can contain also DRM: Digital Restriction Management

Why accept all these restriction when you can have somethings better?

Of course if you have a Sony Vaio C1XD and no DVD drive you have to use other means to get FC7 onto your machine...

Nice tour, although I really didn't like the classical music set in the background as if comparing linux/fedora to a fine wine.

The liveCD comes with a tool called gparted which can resize windows partitions. You can also install from the LiveCD.

Untrue comments about Ubuntu

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 85.177.201.241] on November 11, 2007 11:18 PM
You said you like Fedora's signed packages because they provide security. Ubuntu (as well as all other Debian based distributions) has the same package signing mechanism, so no difference there. It also struck me as odd, when you said Ubuntu doesn't offer any games on initial boot. Well, it does.
