Indeed so nearly! - although I do still have an old machine with 256MB RAM and the DVD install won't work. nor an HD install off the same iso file in it - not for F7 or F6. However it did still install F7 from the KDE livecd and sometime in the coming few weeks I will try and install f8 that way on that machine - however my priority will be to install on the newer machines - starting with a laptop where it won't matter if I have problems and am not up and running within an hour or two. Once any issues are resolved I will work around the other machines - and eventually back to the old 256MB machine!
