Re: Windows based installation of Fedora Linux?



Would it be possible to do with anaconda? And I think its better to start out as an unofficial thing, because that tends to garner more testing. If it works out well, then I think it should be possible to be included as part of the +1 release of what the unofficial one was intended for. Suppose it is done for Fedora 8, then if all goes well, it should be supplemented into available official methods of install in Fedora 9. I suppose it would be pretty important to use anaconda, because of the management tools available for anaconda...

This would be neat and I've looked into it before. From the Virtual
FUDCon, I've taken that a user needing a windows installer is not in our
target audience (at least not right now.) With regards to making it an
"unofficial" installer to prove it's viability, I'm all for it. Fedora
sponsored/official live images were sparked by community initiative, a
'from windows' installer might be an example in the future. I don't
particularly like the way Wubi gets things done, but give the concept
merit. I'd look at helping to do something similar, but using anaconda
to do the install among other changes.
