The computer is a DakTEch Freedom 4 P4 DDR System.
The system board is a D865GBFL w/LAN,audio & video
Processor Intel Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz 800FSB
I got it in 2006.
I switched to CentOS because Fedora will not install on it any more.
Fedora 14 is the last I was able to install.
Installation has almost always been a tremendous hassle for me,
so I've usually not gone with the latest
and greatest until my current nears EOL.
I've read that a kernel bug is the reason that I could not install F16.
Supposedly it had been fixed by F17, but no go.
