Hello all, I have a gigi-byte Athlon that is now just too tired for what I want to do. I plan to install my new asus main board and new cpu and ram. The old mobo has a Riva TNT2 16 meg video card, the new one, an A7V400-MX has on-board video. Both motherboards have NIC, audio built in. ADSL connection to the net. My inclination is to just bolt up the new parts sans disk until it works, then attach a bootable IDE drive and see what develops. FC3 up to date. CRT monitor, Adaptec controller and Seagate SCSI drive. I don't really have a decent backup solution (hds full of music and videos far larger than DVD capacity), so what do people recommend? Should I expect Fedora to become non-functional? Dave -- Lake Pontchartrain - better living through chemistry?
