Need help installing Fedora Core + Solaris

I want to learn how to use Linux, and Fedora Core seems to be pretty popular. At the same time, I want to install Solaris 10 onto this old machine of mine (still meets requirements).

Now, I want to set it up in a dual boot mode, sort of like you would with Windows+ Linux.

I need some help doing this though, as I haven’t tried something like it before.

  1. When I try to download the ISO’s for Fedora, the server is full. The mirror sites only have 3 ISO’s for download, unlike Red Hat’s 4. What does this mean?

  2. I assume I’ll need some sort of driver disk or what not to install Fedora onto a fresh HD, right? How can I go about doing this?

I hear NJS is good at this… but I’m sure others are too. Help?
