Fedora Core Fedora Core 1 has been out now for a few days now and many faithful Linux fans have already installed it. Red Hat's Linux is still one of my favorite distributions because of one main reason: compatibility with Linux software. Red Hat is a market leader and following the market leader assures the least trouble for most users. But is this the case with Fedora Core?

I had small problems getting my cdrom drive to work, but it turned out the problem was DMA was enabled when it should not have been. To fix this I ran "hdparm -d 0 /dev/hdc". This bug was in all distros I tried, but the people in #fedora on irc.freenode.net helped me find out what the problem was. If you are having any kinds of problems with it you can go in there and get help. The people are very nice and know what they're talking about. They also have links to other site's that may answer your questions.
