Hi Fred,

Firstly, Fedora Core 6 is out.  Secondly, did your friend tell you why 
he recommended Fedora Core 5?  I try to make recommendations based on 
the persons needs as opposed to what I personally favor so I don't 
really know if Fedora Core is best suited for your application. 
Furthermore, from your RSVP it appears that you are planning on keeping 
Windows on the computer.  In this case, "reformatting" the hard drive 
for Linux requires some fairly obscure steps that at times even confuses 
me (although there may be recently developed simpler ways to do things 
that I have not heard about).  I hope this information will help you in 
making your decision.  Thanks!
