Default Good place to Download ISO's for Linux

Preferably Redhat/fedora for an old PIII just to test it out, see how it works and such. And maybe for storing music.

1. There's this thing called Google. It's really neat. You find it at www.google.com by typing that into your browser's address text box and hitting enter. You should try that now. Do it.

2. Now, type "redhat fedora" into the big text box right above the button that says "Google Search." Click on the "Google Search" button. (Move the mouse cursor until it is over the button and press the left [NOTE: NOT THE RIGHT] mouse button.)

3. Click on the very first link, Fedora Project, sponsored by Red Hat. That will take you to http://fedora.redhat.com/ {Click # 1} (NOTE: some wildly wreckless people would have just guessed that since Redhat is sponsoring the Fedora project, fedora.redhat.com is probably the site. It's a lot like guessing that quicktime.apple.com is Apple's web site for Quicktime, which they make or that Java from Sun Microsystems is at java.sun.com. Don't be like them. They make a lot of mistakes. I know.)

4. Scroll all the way down (using the sliding bar on the right. Left click on the bar and while holding down the left mouse button, drag the bar downward to move the page downward) until you see the paragraph titled (of all things), "Download". Alternatively, you can use the Page Down key on your keyboard, but only wussies use that.

5. You'll see a link (i.e., underlined text) in that paragraph named "download." Click it once. (Clicking twice will bring an end to the world as you know it.) {Click # 2}

6. Doing that scroll down thing again (see step 4), scroll down until you see a paragraph entitled "Downloading the ISO Images" come into view.

7. Click on the http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...re/2/i386/iso/ link if you have anything other than an AMD Athlon 64 or some other 64-bit processor. If you do have an Athlon 64, I despise you, and you should click on http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../2/x86_64/iso/ {Click #3 - Yes, I know this is getting monotonous.}

8. You will now come face to face with the Fedora download server page. You'll have to click (once and only once) on each of the files FC2-i386-disc1.iso, FC2-i386-disc2.iso, FC2-i386-disc3.iso, and FC2-i386-disc4.iso (for the not-a-AMD-Athlon-64) images. {Clicks 4 through 7. Will this madness never end?} IMPORTANT!!!: Whatever you do, don't click on the four links that have the letters "SRPMS" in them. Those are a blatent trick to catch the unaware. "SRPMS" stands for "Satan Rules the People at Microsoft Solutions."

9. Once you have the four iso images, you'll need to burn them to CDs and install from them. That is beyond the scope of this tutorial. Sorry.

I'm not really a jackass, but thanks for being completely humorless in my response to a post that sounds so totally clueless. It's got to be the 10th one on here today that I found the answer to in under half a dozen clicks from the Google toolbar. Now, you might have mentioned that you tried xxx.com and got a bad download. Then we'd know that you gave it a good intelligent try, but ran into a legitimate problem.
