I think Fedora Core is one of the best distros you can use regardless

I've been fooling with Red Hat products since Red Hat Linux 6.1. I
still remember the absolute hell of upgrading to Red Hat 6.2. Anaconda
was a bit rough around the edges in those days. Bust mostly, I was new
to Linux, new to the hardware I was trying to install on, and as a
result I made a ton of mistakes. I did one thing right: I kept on
trying until I succeeded. (At this point I pat myself on my back
