Fedora-16-Live-SoaS liveinst

  • The Fedora Sugar on a Stick Spin can be installed from a booted SoaS Live CD/USB.

Download links:

i386: Fedora-16-i686-Live-SoaS
x86-64: Fedora-16-x86_64-Live-SoaS
  • This tutorial is set up for a 4 GB USB stick or VirtualBox 4 GB hard disk install.
See custom layout screens below. It may be adapted for a regular hard disk.

Name Screen

  • First Screen that appears when boot is done.
The Name and colors screens set the individual SSH ID for the user and only run once.
(Enter Name you want to use.)

Click (done) when you are happy with it.

  • Shut down the computer.
  • Reboot from the USB device or hard drive.
