The equivalent for this in Fedora would be X getting killed.  I have seen this 
occasionally in RH8 and 9 but not in Fedora.  So I think this will probably 
go away for you.

Does XP really have such a restriction, or is it your HDD controller or BIOS 
that is to blame instead?  Fedora definitely works with 250GB drives since I 
have one.  But I worry that you PC is at fault here.

This could be a few things, including your motherboard or your mouse.  If it 
was caused by anything in XP it will likely get fixed by Fedora.

Basically you sound like you have reasons to try Fedora, especially since you 
can pull out your old HDD completely, stick the 160GB guy in and install 
Fedora on that.  Then you can always go back with no loss of data if there 
are problems.  People here will certainly be willing to help.

If you can burn your own CDRs, download and burn these guys

Then set your BIOS to be able to boot from your CD drive, insert disc1 and 
reboot.
