Just got a Thinkpad T20 (came with Win2000sp4...sic)
and tried to install Fed5 from burnt CDs. Midway
through the 1st disk it fails, saying it can't read
the CD. I run the "media test" Fed5 provides--and
disks 1 and 2 come up bad. I'm pretty sure they're not
(used the same on my main box install), so I suspect
the CDROM drive is old/too slow/flaky.

So, is there a way to install over the net? Can I
install from my main box (Fed 5), or even over the
Internet? At this point I'll take anybody's Linux
