Wiping my hard drive and installing a linux OS, do I have it right?
I want to wipe the hard drive completely on my desktop and install the Fedora linux OS. I don't want to keep my old OS. I want to wipe everything and start fresh. So first I would have to get a DBAN and put it on a disk and fire up my computer, then go to the boot menu and tell it to boot up from the CD-ROM, and that would wipe everything, then restart with a disk that has Fedora on it and tell it to boot up with that to install the new OS. Right?
Then I have a netbook that needs a new OS. (When I turn it on it says "Operating System not found"). But it doesn't have a disk drive. So I would have to put Fedora on a flash drive I guess and start it up with that.
Do I have all this right? And if not, please give me DETAILS on what I am doing wrong. I want to be sure before I start.
Also, please look over my previous questions for more information:
Which Linux OS is best for me?
What is an OEM key and how can I reinstall an OS?
Is there a free OS that operates similar to Windows?
