So Ubuntu and DSL upgrades went fine...however fedora wont play nice.


Now i downloaded fedora 11 and i made a "Fedora" folder at the root of my disk.

i then copied the dir from the fedora iso and put them in this "Fedora" folder.

After that i looked at fedoras isolinux.cfg and added the lines to my "linux.cfg" to get it to boot.

Here is fedoras isolinux.cfg

Code:
default vesamenu.c32
timeout 100

menu background splash.jpg
menu title Welcome to Fedora-11-i686-Live!
menu color border 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color sel 7 #ffffffff #ff000000
menu color title 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color tabmsg 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color unsel 0 #ffffffff #00000000
menu color hotsel 0 #ff000000 #ffffffff
menu color hotkey 7 #ffffffff #ff000000

You (probably) can't make a subdirectory in the root of your disk, if in the original iso the files and directories are the following in root: /EFI, /isolinux, ...)
You can try this (didn't try it myself, just a guess):
Quote:
label fedora
menu label Boot Fedora 11
kernel /EFI/vmlinuz0
append initrd=/EFI/initrd0.img root=CDLABEL=UBCD411 rootfstype=auto ro liveimg quiet rhgb

Adapt UBCD411 in "root=CDLABEL=UBCD411" to the right volume label for your iso.

I was basing the path to vmlinuz0 and initrd0.img on the command that you had:
Quote:
KERNEL /Fedora/EFI/vmlinuz0

I didn't download Fedoro myself.

You can leave the vmlinuz0 and initrd0.img file in the directory where they are now or you can move them to another directory. The only files of a linux distro that you can always put in any directory of your preference are the kernel and initrd (or initramfs). So you can put them in /bla/bla/bla too, if you really want. Other files can not always been moved to a location of your choice (depends on the distro and the available cheatcodes).

How could i connect to internet on Fedora 8 using my GPRS activated mobile phone? I can only be able to browse my Sony Ericsson Z530i phone via a bluetooth connection on Fedora 8, however i'm not getting an option to connect to internet with it. Can anyone please tell me how could i do that? I'm using Airtel Mobile Office for internet on Windows XP by a bluetooth connection between my phone and my lappy. How could i do same in Fedora 8? Please help..
