Installing Fedora Core 3
Fedora CORE 3, comes on several CD's. Set the computer to boot from its
CD-ROM drive via an appropriate change in its BI OS Setup . Place the
first Fedora CORE installation CD into the CD-ROM drive and restart the

computer. Since the computer has been instructed to boot from the CDROM it will pick up its OS from the first CD inserted in the CDROM drive instead of the HDD.

Having booted the OS from the first CD, the computer's VDU will display a
screen as shown in diagram 1.1.

The system will wait for the user to either pressEn t e r if desired to run the installation in graphical mode or to type in a command at theb o o t prompt if required. Some machines are particular when it comes to installing Fedora CORE 3 and require the installation to be run with one or more parameters. This is where the user would enter those parameters. However for now the installation process can be commenced by simply pressingEn t e r at theb o o t prompt. This will be followed by a screen prompting to check the CD inserted for errors if any, in the drive. This step can be skipped if the user is sure about the CDs being used for installation by selectings k i p option.
