Thank you. I wasn't sure if the newer versions supported older hardware.
I was actually successful in downloading the DVD of FC6 from the web site
with HTTP, so I now have that. I will attempt an install with that DDVD on
the old machine with the Double Talk card. I'm also going to install on a
newer machine with an AMD Sempron XP3000+ with 1.5GB of RAM, a 250 GB SATA
drive, and an external LiteTalk.
