I'd like to try again with Fedora, but now that I've been part way
trough the install I've got a couple of questions.
The installer reported a bad DVD. Does this mean that there is a
problem with the physical disc, or that the ISO image itself is messed
up? I saved the ISO file on my other computer and I can burn another
DVD with it if I need to. Is there a way to find out if the ISO is a
fault. If it is I'll have to try downloading it again.
Also, when moving through the installation process it didn't seem that
Fedora recognized my Debian system when it came time to configure
Grub. I accepted the default configuration for Grub, because I
couldn't find a way to add the Debian as one of the bootloader
At the grub setup, you should see the Fedora install in a window, with a big ADD button next to it. Then add the partition with the bootloader. NOTE: if you put grub in the MBR with debian you probably have to install it in the partition.
I added a drive for FC6 and added the partition on hda where /boot lives. Then when I boot I have a menu for FC6 or hda/boot, and when I select that I get the grub menu for my FC4 boot (seven kernels in various states of patchedness). Relatively easy, although I never did it in text mode, I'm reporting my default install.
I'm told that the same hold true for having FC6 on a USB drive... Have NOT tried that one, although I might, I have a reason to at least try it.
However, it appears that Grub didn't overwrite my MBR entries for
Debian, becuase after I bailed on the Fedora install Grub loaded
Debian with no problems. Did I miss something during the install, or
should Fedora have notified me that it saw Debian when it was
Fedora will not notify you, but you can still add "other operating systems" by partition.
I'm not at trying to complain in any way. I'm just want to learn what
I can about Fedora, and provide some positive feedback. :]
P.S. - I had to use the text-only version of the installer, becuase I
only have 512 MB of RAM.

Obscure bug of 2004: BASH BUFFER OVERFLOW - if bash is being run by a
normal user and is setuid root, with the "vi" line edit mode selected,
and the character set is "big5," an off-by-one errors occurs during
wildcard (glob) expansion.
