"However, becoming so dependent on a single distribution could
be considered a handicap as well, so I downloaded FC10 for x86_64
to install on my HP Media Center. This system is a few years old;
it has 2GB RAM, a 320GB drive that also dual-boots Windows XP, and
an AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ processor.
"The FC10 installation is very straightforward, but it took me
three times to get it done. There seems to be a bug in the time
zone selection part of the install where it will freeze the system.
The third install I quickly pushed "Next" and avoided any
configuration here. Luckily, it worked and I ended up doing the
time configuration post-install."
