Pre-installation Steps The disk space is checked and Partitioning is done for separate Fedora installation.

The Booting sequence is made to start initially on the DVD.

On Installation Fedora 15 server Installation

Boot from Fedora 15 DVD, Select Install a new system or upgrade an existing system:

Since it takes a long time to test the installation media so we skip this test here:

language for use is selected then next is hit:

keyboard layout is selected:

Since we are using a locally attached hard drive, Basic Storage Devices is selected here:

As we want a fresh Fedora installation, click on the Yes, discard any data button next:

host name for the server is selected:

Time zone is selected:

Give root a password:

Next we do the partitioning. Select Replace Existing Linux System(s). This will give you a small /boot partition and a large / partition which is fine for our purposes:

Select Write Changes to Disk:

The hard drive is being formatted:

Now we select the software we want to install. Uncheck Graphical Desktop and check Web Server instead. Then check Customize now. Afterwards, select the additional repositories Fedora 15 - x86_64 and Fedora 15 - x86_64 - Updates (if you are on an i686 system, the names are probably Fedora 15 - i686 and Fedora 15 - i686 Updates):

Finally, the installation is complete, and you can remove your DVD from the computer and reboot it:
