That might make sense. If FC3 isn't easy to install and won't do what
you need then why bother.?

Yes, this one has seemed pretty difficult. Like I said, you might want
to download some other Live CDs - Gentoo, Knoppix, etc., and jsut see
if they boot. You don't have to install anything. I guess my thought
is that you wait for FC4/FC5, etc., and then they still don't boot,
and you don't know what to do. Maybe a little more study and a couple
of cheap CDs right now will save yolu some pain later?

Whatever you do, we're here to help, or maybe as in this case, just
keep you company. ;-)
