"I wanted to run an optimized full-on Fedora 10 Gnome
desktop. Some may argue that my expectations from this machine is
far too demanding, and I should resign to a life of XFCE, or other
light window manager. While I fully understand that stance, my
preference is to have a 'mini' version of my multiple desktop
machines. Should you want to run a different flavor of Fedora, most
of this guide will still be applicable."
