I would recommend either Fedora Core 5 or 6. I don't have images as I
used to do (not enough time to do everything). If you have good internet
connectivity from the computer in question it should be fine to install
from the net (you will need the basic Fedora Core dvd or cds installed
first, of course).

No problem. If you have more question probably the Planet CCRMA list is
