    There are some differences. But the Fedora installer will walk you through everything.
    However, Fedora 7 is no longer actively maintained. You might want to look into a newer version. 10 is current, with 11 being released in about a month.

    lspci will give you most of what you might need. lsusb will give you USB devices. There are other programs as well, like lshw (list hardware), not sure what Fedora has installed however.

    ifconfig and iwconfig

    I just saw that you also have a similar post in the Installation section. I'll ask the same question as techieMoe...

    Is this for homework?

    Personally to me, its an easier setup in Fedora, at least in the newer releases, and does vary on whether your partitioning or need particular configurations.
