This is a list of Frequently Asked Questions and answers to help those who are asked about Fedora to easily answer the most common questions.

Do I need to download all 5 CDs?
No - a typical install only uses the first 2 CDs.
But RPM is dependency hell!
RPM isn't the best way to install software - most of the software you will ever need is found in yum, which automatically installs any dependencies.
I don't like being told I can't listen to my MP3s
MP3s aren't free, see the ForbiddenItems page for more details.
What happened to my Everything install?!?
If you want all packages from one or more package groups, right-click on the package group name and choose to install all packages.
Remember, Everything always means different things to different people. Rather than define and support 100 variations of an everything install, you can now define your own!
