How to install linux fedora 7, already i am using windows 7, now i want to use dual os's , please tell me how to install linux.


WARNING: I will not be responsible for any data loss that occurs. It is recommended to backup your hard disk to external media before commencing any of these operations. 1. Download and burn the Fedora LiveCD. It is recommended that you use the latest version, Fedora 14, instead of 7, but you can use Version 7 anyways. 2. Boot up with the Fedora LiveCD. Select Install. 3. Follow the instructions displayed onscreen. When you reach the partitioning screen, you will need to resize your Windows partition. Resize it to a reasonable size (1024MB =1GB). Leave at least 5GB for Fedora to install. 4. After resizing, select the "Use Free Disk Space" option, and continue installing. 5. Your system will be installed with Fedora and the GRUB bootloader. The GRUB bootloader will allow you to boot into both Windows and Fedora.
I hope this post helps you. I appreciate your vote very much!

Fixya Chat client for LINUX fedora 10


Hi,
I actually don't know if one is available, but you could email General Support - support@fixya.com

I was wondering though if you can install under WINE in Fedora? I am used to Ubuntu, but have actually burned the Fedora10 .iso to a disk, but haven't played with it yet, so I don't know if you can install WINE to it, but I presume you can.
Maybe you could mount XP, grab the Chat Client Installer and see if you can run it using WINE?
I know it probably won't be listed as being supported by the repository, but it wouldn't hurt to try..
Good Luck

Depends on what you are using it for.

Unable to boot Fedora 8


From what i have been able to find on this board and fedora forums, the issue you are having is not a bootloader issue... Assuming all hardware is good and functional. it is likely that getting another video card and dissabling the onboard then reinstalling linux will fix u up :)
from what i have read it is an issue with x not being able to start and fedora sets the default runlevel to graphical so.... it appears to freeze but i bet you can hit ctrl+alt+F1/F2 to get to the various terminal screens if this is the case then you need to change graphics cards and even then it may not fix the issue. This issue seems to be a pervasive issue for all versions of fedora back at least to core 3 for this board for me this indicates hardware incompatibility (specifically the video controller)
I hope this helps... if not let me know
