'misplaced' the floppy and cd drives. I know the cd drive was working
when I switched over to KDE from Gnome; now its MIA with KDE too. This
box, can't even find my scanner-- jeez, I can go to the HP site and get
the scanner software for Win95 to Vista.
  How screwed up is Fedora 7 going to be??

While 'linux is linux', distros do vary quite a bit, and some distros are 
better than others with particular hardware.  Before giving up, try out some 
live CDs if you can get hold of them - many are available for download.  In 
particular, I'd think that either ubuntu or mandriva may suit you better than 
fedora.  Hope that helps

  He he he; one of the perks of having broadband- most of the distros are already sitting here on cd. :-) 
  Thanks for your help in the past btw.
