Friday at ILF we had a Installfest room for anyone wanting help installing linux
The only Distros represented in the Installfest room was Fedora and FreeBSD
the room opened at 9 and was quiet, so at noon i went to meet Pascal who was due to show up to get him in the room and grab some lunch.
After lunch we got back and there was a gentleman there who described himself as a energetic academic who was interested in linux, for this post we will call him “Bob”
Bob has a Desktop and want to have Fedora installed
Bob goes and gets his computer, and brings it back and we back up the data he wants backed up off the second hard drive and install Fedora with a liveusb
For some strange reason Bob’s machine saw the usb key as /dev/sda so when it installled grub it installed to the usb key
and some battleing to install grub to the first HD i grab the F!4 x86_64 DVD and reinstalled.
Bob was happy and I gave him my contact info in case he had any problems.
and gave him instructions on how to yum update and install xchat to get to the #fedora channel if he ran into other problems
