Linux Fedora Core 6

i downloaded the cd ISO images for Linux Fedora Core 6, i burned the first one to a dvd.
i used DigitalMedia Home by Roxio, the burn went file until the very end, it said that there was a error during the burn and i had to try again. I opened the cd, and found a bunch of files there. So i tried to boot up, but it said i was missing a kernel iso

any ideas?

If you have a DVD burner, you should just burn the DVD ISO, it's a lot easier than burning 5 CDs.

Well you are going to need all 5 of the CDs to complete the install of FC6. If you can't handle that, I would suggest getting a smaller distro such as Gentoo, and then building it from the minimalist install. I think the stage 2 install is only a couple hundred MB.

Debian Linux also has a 'net install' CD, and I haven't tried installing Gentoo in a while, but when I did... it took a little bit for my computer to get up and running... (Debian would probably be a bit faster, unless Gentoo has created a new install program)

You are right, Gentoo compiles all packages from source, creating a finely tailored OS. If you don't have the connection speed (or the time to devote to this) Debian may be a better way to go.

The OP did cite time as a reason he was unable to download the Fedora catalogue. (and Debian is highly configurable. Not that I'm biased. Or using Debian now...)

:: Possible thread hijack::

Has Gentoo updated their install program? I vaguely remember hearing something about them recommending Stage 3 installs to more people, but can't remember if that came with a more streamlined install. I've always wanted to go back to Gentoo (that laptop is long gone at this point :()

I don't like Fedora Core 6. I had many problems with disk 3, I downloaded and burned it multiple times but each time it failed. Fedora Core 5 was fine and I hope they do better with Fedora Core 7 because I certainly will use that if the download is fine.

I think I just have difficulties with ISO CDs. I used a DVD to get FC6, and it worked well for me. (Then again, I have good bandwidth at my work...) My problem with FC/RH in general is the look and feel. They're trying to make it seem too much like Windows - and they're putting their efforts into making warm and fuzzy graphics instead of making it more user-friendly. I still find it easier to change my resolution by editing /etc/X11 by hand than using the GUI's lame tool.

I can install Python 2.4 on the Fedora 3 Linux system, but after I do a number of Linux utilities and commands, like yum, stop working because they were dependent on the Python 2.3 installation. What happens is that Python 2.4 replaces the /usr/bin/python module with the Python 2.4 version. If I replace /usr/bin/python with the Python 2.3 version executable, which is still on my system, that all the aforesaid modules depend on, they start...

I need to detect whether the operating system I am running on (not the Python version) is 64bit or 32bit. One requirement is that I need to include support for non-Intel/AMD architectures. The 2 ways I have thought detecting 64bit are: 1. struct.calcsize("P") == 8 2. '64' in os.uname() I'm not convinced that either one of these is really adequate. Does
