Installing Fedora 3 on Windows

This is a record of my attempt to install Fedora 3 on Windows

1. Install JDK 6. Can be downloaded from:

1.1 In order to prevent spacing problem in the directory name, I chose to install Java at C:\Java (Normally, it goes to C:\Program Files\Java

2. Install fedora 2. It can be downloaded from:

2.1 Navigate to folder in Command Prompt (cmd.exe). I ran the Command Prompt as Administrator by right click > Run as Administrator. Then I run

java -jar fedora-installer.jar

2.2 I selected custom and parameters [roughly] can be found here.

3. Setting Environment Variables. This can be done in 2 ways.

3.1 Right click at My Computer > Properties >Advanced >Environment Variable

3.2 Through command (only for that session)



SET CATALINA_HOME=C:\fedora\tomcat

3.3 Navigate to FEDORA_HOME\tomcat\bin

3.4 Run startup.bat

Please find your fedora at the url, for example, http://localhost:8080/fedora

Ps. It also works when setting up java to C:\Program files\Java\…

Pss. Everything seems to work fine, there must be something wrong with my installer lol
