Chapter 3. Before You Begin

Before you install Fedora Core, you need access to:

  • boot or installation media (refer to Chapter 4, Preparing Media for more information)

  • information about your network configuration

  • a copy of this Installation Guide and the Release Notes for this version of Fedora Core

The Release Notes specify the hardware requirements for Fedora Core 6. They also provide advice on any known problems with particular hardware and software configurations.

The Release Notes are available on the first disc in HTML and plain text format. The latest versions of this Installation Guide and the Release Notes are available at

3.1. Storage

A Fedora system requires a minimum of 700 MB storage for a command-line system. A desktop system with the default applications requires at least 3 GB of storage. You may install multiple copies of Fedora on the same computer.

Configure any RAID functions provided by the mainboard of your computer, or attached controller cards, before you begin the installation process. Fedora can automatically detect many RAID devices and use any storage they provide.
