    Would it be possible for someone to create a FC2 base installation, along the lines of the FC1 one. 

    I am not in a situation where I can create even the tiniest installation in order to create the necessary disk image.

    I am very pleased with the Debian 3.0 r2 image and would like to do some testing under FC2.

    Many thanks,

        Robert

      I've tried to install FC2 but I can't find an installation medium.  I copied the initrd file from the DVD I have FC2 on, from Linux Format, to my HDD and parsed it as a boot parameter.  The installer comes up, I can select language and keyboard layout? but it then asks where i am installing from.  Upon selecting any of the disk based solutions, it prompts for a driver disk.  Any ideas?

       
    • you can upgrade easily from the fc1 image
      just pickup the fedora 1 colinux image;
      change the repository to fc2 repositories
      apt-get update
      apt-get distupdate

      it worked for me :)
      remenber to do it from a clean fc1 image or it will be screwed up

      What changes need to be made to change the repositories?

       
    • if i remenber right the list of repository is in /etc/apt/sources.list

      just nano it and paste in a fedora 2 repository
