Installing Fedora 7 on my old Desktop

I managed to find some time yesterday to turn an old WinXP desktop into a Fedora 7 server. The installation went smoothly but after the first software update the system was just crawling.

Somehow many disabled services were magically re-enabled and that was just too much for the old 640Mb, Pentium III machine.

From the many useless forum posting I googled around, I found this extremely useful and comprehensive guide, the Personal Fedora 7 Installation Guide.

Highly recommended.
