How do you download and install Fedora 9 on an i686 32bit laptop(IBM ThinkPad A31)

Installed:

********************* Processor:1.60 GHz************** Software: Fedora
8
******************** Hard disk: 30 GB********************************** Kernel: 2.6.25.9-40.fc8
******************** Memory: so dim 256 MB

i386 direct download install stopped at 35% - reason unknown. When I thought the laptop was an i386.

A Pentium 4 processor is compatible with the i686 build (the i686 instruction
set is actually pre-pentium 3). You were using the correct install media. You
might have better luck using the Live CD disk, booting into the graphical
environment, and then installing to your harddrive. The instructions to do that
are clearly given once you have the disk booted up.


The Live CD gives you a smaller install, which may not have the problems of the
DVD. You can then install any of the DVD software using the PackageKit
Add/Remove program once you're running from your harddrive.


Try this one:
