Fedora Dual-boot

Here goes nothing! I'm playing with fire and attempting an install of Fedora Core 3 on my Win XP Dell C840, despite numerous reasons to avoid it.

On the upside, I don't have much data to lose anyway because I just got a hard-disk upgrade and a fresh XP install so I've only got a couple days' worth of work, as opposed to 2 years' worth.

We'll see what happens...


Success! Installation was painless, and XP still boots! I'm now fiddling with updating software packages since FC3 was released, we'll see how that goes. up2date seems a bit clunky, and I've read that even the Fedora developers nuke it.
