samavedam_vijay,

 

Yes, you are right! I am first time user of fedora distros. Will I have any problems with drivers?

you can use fedora 10 all features will work out of the box but i cannot say whether the wifi connections will work out or not i dont have a laptop/notebook to give feedback in that regard..everything wil be fine but do remember that propritery formats like mp3/mpeg and others including MS office formats will not work due to licensing issues...you may want to go for open SuSE 11 it does give support to these formats and gives you adobe reader and all the usuall stuff you would expect

 

have a good time with fedora!

 

 

 

ps:if you obtained vista with your system make recovery cd set before proceeding with installing fedora 10..if you have anydoubts regarding installation issues wait untill fedora docs are available for installing it

stantyan,

 

i would sujjest you use live cd versions of some distros that i have used which i i have found intuitive and reliable

 

pclinux os

 2.ubuntu 8.10

3. open suse11

 

you seem to be new to the linux world try exploring these distros and then decide which one you would prefer the most...run live cd sessions of these distros and check out the working of your wireless card most of them automatically detect it during installtion itself 

 

for installing fedora 10 follow this link
