Howdy! I have come to the decision that Windows Vista is worthless when it comes to compiling C++ programs. Therefore, I have decided to migrate to Fedora 7 as my programming alternative on a Live CD.
I am currently downloading the file Fedora-7-Live-x86_64.iso. There is another one in the same directory on the mirror of which I am downloading from called Fedora-7-Live-KDE-x86_64.iso.
The Fedora Download/Install documentation only says that "The images for Fedora 7 live CDs are:", but do I need both files?
Thanks!

No. The first one will use the default desktop environment of Gnome. The second disk is a KDE desktop. It's preference really. Can you post the site you are d/l ing from, so I can be for sure I am giving you the right poop? By the title though, that's the difference.

Yeah, you're right. And it doesn't even matter now, since my discs weren't big enough to hold Fedora anyways (dang those folks at Memorex...). Thanks though - anything helps to get to know Linux better! :thumbsup:

It's becoming more and more common these days for linux to be on DVD. You may want to check if that's the problem. If there is a CDROM version, you'll have to check that as well.

The Fedora 7 you are downloading Is a Live DVD. As far as I know there are only DVD versions of F7 the 2 Live DVDs and then the current install disc.

Yeah I'm SOL in the DVD-RW department lol.
I bought some CD-RW's in bulk, so I'm using them.
