Well, FC5 is long out of support, that's what you get for waiting so long
until you finally upgrade. (Hint: you're supposed to upgrade at each or
every other release, not wait 5 releases and then install in parallel,
still keeping the totally outdated version.)

jbyers;
I am fully aware that I was/am way out of date, and fully nonsupported in fc5.
I _was_� trying to install the current f10�
(which i think you would encourage)
but wanted to retain fc5 until i successfully installed f10,
surely a safe practice.

Instead I� got my main fc5 clobbered by
some combination of
--my own inexperience
--a live/install cd that did not have a "custom" option.
� or i� couldnt see it.

David's experience also was that there was no custom option.

I purchased my cd from OSDisc.com
Fedora 10 KDE Edition - install/Live CD

is this some outdated version?
or a deficient version?
not officially supported?
How is one to know?

you simply clicked next on the partitioning screen with the drop down box that said "replace my existing linux install" instead of clicking said drop down box and choosing custom. user error all the way. afaik the live cd's have had custom partitioning since at least f9 if not before then!
