"Red Hat has the reputation of catering to geeks but looking at the installation, you might think otherwise. For experienced users it's a piece of cake. For new users or those who have had problems during the installation, we have this detailed install guide."

"Installing Red Hat 7.0 is a breeze. Unlike the previous version, which promised support for the i810 chip but gave up when it came to the crunch, RH 7.0 has come a long way in hardware auto detection. In fact, we hardly had to make any manual selections with the exception of Time zone, programs to install and the like. At last, Red Hat seems to have woken up to the needs of the average user."

"You need the following survival equipment:

  1. Manuals for your computer monitor. If you do not have them, then try the manufacturer's web site or try chasing the supplier.
  2. A notebook to keep a log of the selections you have made (so you can undo any mistakes)
  3. A prayer book?"
