Below are the recommended Fedora system requirements :

 Processor and memory requirements for x86 Architectures

The following CPU specifications are stated in terms of Intel processors. Other processors, such as those from AMD, Cyrix, and VIA that are compatible with and equivalent to the following Intel processors, may also be used with Fedora. Fedora 13 requires an Intel Pentium Pro or better processor, and is optimized for i686 and later processors.
  • Recommended for text-mode: 200 MHz Pentium Pro or better
  • Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz Pentium Pro or better
  • Minimum RAM for text-mode: 256 MiB
  • Minimum RAM for graphical: 384 MiB
  • Recommended RAM for graphical: 512 MiB

 Processor and memory requirements for x86_64 architectures

  • Minimum RAM for text-mode: 256 MiB
  • Minimum RAM for graphical: 384 MiB
  • Recommended RAM for graphical: 512 MiB

Hard disk space requirements for all architectures

The complete packages can occupy over 9 GB of disk space. Final size is entirely determined by the installing spin and the packages selected during installation. Additional disk space is required during installation to support the installation environment. This additional disk space corresponds to the size of /Fedora/base/stage2.img (on Installation Disc 1) plus the size of the files in /var/lib/rpm on the installed system.
In practical terms, additional space requirements may range from as little as 90 MiB for a minimal installation to as much as an additional 175 MiB for a larger installation.
Additional space is also required for any user data, and at least 5% free space should be maintained for proper system operation.

Fedora is booting up

This is what the desktop looks like when you are running Fedora 14. You can choose to simply play around with the operating system, surf the net and what not. However, know that running it from the CD/DVD is MUCH slower than running it from a hard drive. However, this is a good way of getting to know if you want to use this version of Linux. Now if you wish to install Fedora 14, simply double-click on "Install to Hard Drive"

Click on Next




If you get an error message about it not being able to recognize the hard drive, simply select the last choise, "Re-Initialize all".

Enter in the root password (required). You can enter anything in just make sure that it is a good password.

If you do not care about the password you used, you can opt to use it as is.

Select to use all the space if this is a new hard drive. At this time you can simply use the free space left on your hard drive or if you have no space, you can shrink the size of Windows to create the space required to install Fedora 14., 10 GB for the installation.

Confirm that you wish to commit the changes to disk.  Not to scare you but I would like to stress once you do this there is no turning back.

All that is required is that you click on "Close", reboot your system, remove the CD when the computer or laptop prompts you to, and then all your computer to boot into Fedora 14. Stability, security, no viruses, and one of the best versions of a Linux Desktop ever seen from Fedora!  For extra help and documentation for Fedora, click here. To download Fedora, click here.
