Post Fedora 10 on a Sony Vaio

This is a short review of my experience installing Fedora 10 on a Sony Vaio.

Model: VGN-NS135D purchased for around $700 cdn (with taxes)
Processor: Pentium Dual Core T3200
Memory: 3 gb of ram
HDD: 200 gb or was it 250 gb, I cant recall.
NIC: Marvell Yukon
Original OS: Vista Family edition premium

Prior experience with any form of Linux: Big Zero!!!! Actually I read a bit about it on the internet, and if it is on the internet, it must be true. (Okay, I know lame attempt at humour).

Installing Fedora 10 in dual boot has been a breeze. First I used Vista to repartition the drive and allow some Linux space.
Since my experience on Linux was nil, I did experience some jitters, hoping that I do not overwrite the windows partition, however the instructions on the downloaded install disk were reasonably clear, and I had made the infamous Windows re install disk.

Everything worked effortlessly, and I am very pleased with the results.

I did experience some difficulties with networking, only to find out that the original network used was to blame. It works fine at home, and at work.

Hold on, I will eventually get rid of the Windows OS.

It is now the beginning of the beginning of what I hope will be a great experience.
