    Yes.

    Although be advised that Fedora Core 2 is very very old now. You'd be better going with a more recent version. The latest is Fedora 9.

    Hi,
    If you have a choice of Fedora distro's I would go for Fedora 8 at the moment. On my machines it seems to work better than Fedora 9.

    Hi,
    Though i got the below info from the link The Unofficial Fedora FAQ , i did not get the exact answer

    Q: Can Fedora run on a 64-bit (AMD-64 or Intel-64) computer?
    A: Yes, it can! A 64-bit version of Fedora is currently available to
    download. It works very well.
    note - You can also run the normal 32-bit version of Fedora on
    your 64-bit computer, although that's rarely required nowadays.


    Pls find the info w.r.t FC2 in the link
    Q: Does Fedora run on the AMD64 (Opteron) platform?
    A: Yes, it does! An AMD64 version of Fedora Core 2 is currently
    available.


    But can Fedora Core 2 run on Intel-64 (Pentium 4) ?
    Any ideas ? Has anyone tried the above combinartion
    or any links confirming the status of Fedora Core 2 on
    Intel-64(Pentium 4).

    Thx in advans,
    Karthik Balaguru
