for some values of "beginner"

I saw A Week with Fedora Core 1 and was somewhat excited to read it, because the description was "a beginner tries out various Linux distros", and I thought it would be interesting to see what happened. Unfortunately, the "beginner" writing the article has been using RedHat since the 5.2 days, so the article really wasn't what I expected. From the sounds of it, a true newbie wouldn't have been able to get Fedora to install, either.
