I'm not sure enough to answer your other questions.  On the CD's, though, the installation never asked me for all five, even when I selected everything for installation.  I didn't want or need what's on the fifth CD, but this does seem strange nonetheless.

Subject: Hello

> Hi all, I just joined the list and am a newbie at Linux.  I installed Fedora 7 Moonshine on my old P-3 machine using a Lite Talk (ltlk) synth.  The pc has a 10Gb hard drive with 512Mb RAM.  I can install the minimum Fedora system minus the graphical packages with no problems.  It boots into a console and all seems well.  Problem is that when I re-install the system and select all packages including graphical packages, it only asks for the first 4 cds and then after I follow all steps to prevent it from loading the initial first start graphic mode, it does not speak.  One question is, does the installation ask for all 5 cds?  Also, should I just install minimum and use Yum to update all packages instead?  Is 10gb enough memory for everything and is that why I can not get the system to speak when I install all packages?
