A simplified installation procedure is one of the best reasons for using a Linux distribution such as Fedora Core 3. In many cases, for a computer dedicated to using Fedora, you can just pop in the DVD(that come with this book), choose from several preset configurations, and be up and running Linux in less than an hour.
If you want to share your computer with both Linux and Microsoft Windows, Fedora offers several ways to go about doing that. If your computer doesn't have a DVD drive, network and hard disk installs are available. To preconfigure Fedora to install on multiple, similar computers, you can use the kickstart installation.
