Why Is Installing Redhat Linux Difficult?

but can select default if they confuse you. more freedom can be confusing to some, but its not a bad thing.
Remember, Installing Linux is the equivelant to installing Windows, Office, Servers, Security, games, multimedia, development tools, cimpilers, and everything else, all at the same time.
Windows is just an Operating System, Linux is an all in one monster operating suite.

Frankly Red Hat/Fedora just boils down to partitioning and package choices... as was said the defaults are enough (I assume always) to have the basics, but I still suggest going through and installing everything that you know what it is if you think you might want it, makes for an easier experience once you are into the OS (since if u are new to linux you may wnt to have some basics abilities before learning about more in depth configuration and whatnot).
There are some distros that give you very limited options, but those are basically equivalent to choosing "install everything" since they just load up everything that distro has to offer. Which reminds me, when installing , if you have the HD space, why not install everything available? Makes the install a breeze and then you have a killer amount of apps to play with right at the get-go.

Install process for SuSe and Mandrake are better than Fedora,RedHat

In between once, I was installating Mandrake 10+ while it was still Mandrake - and I found their installer ultra easy - perfectly designed for the home/desktop user - and very similar to Windows, in the step-by-step method it handled the installation process.

Linux (any Distro) is the most stable OS that is available anywhere. Windows crashes way too much for Bill Gates to have any money in the bank let alone be one of the richest people in the world...
