Installation #1

Your assignment is to install Fedora 15 on one of the machines assigned to your group — please use the one on the left side.

There are 20 USB sticks, and one should be at your assigned desk. These should work, unless you have somehow been given an older machine; please let me know if this is the case.

As to disk partitioning issues, please use the remove all partitions option and don't bother to save any of the old information on the machine.

A journal is due for this assignment. Make sure that you document in your journal all of the steps that you went through, following the guidelines on the class home page. Please share the workload so that all team members get experience with all aspects of the work. Don't forget to assign your work percentages to yourself and your other teammates in your journal.

Please turn in a printed copy of this assignment at the beginning of class on Tuesday, May 31 Thursday, June 2.
