Today I have installed fedora core 4 on my ibm laptop. Most was working fine out of the box. I am having some problems finding utlities, but the command line works fine.
I was having some issues with my wireless network, but these are resolved now. Since this can be an issue for others as well I do want to share my experience with you.

Thats all, run make and make install and connect to your network.
