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 many troubles getting a working RH9 installation on my laptop (HP ze4318ea). Then I tried to install FC1 and all I had to modify was the acpi=on setting in grub.conf and removing the speedtch.o driver (which is only half working to to a missing ppp plugin file) and I was set. I don't like the graphical boot, but you can remove it. Being the first release, it is ways better than I thought. YMMV.
