Kadischi

  • ChitleshGoorah created a livecd based on the Fedora Core 5 Test 3 which was available for download at ftp://ftp.dead.li/ Thanks to JonFautley.

About the Live CD The liveCD was gnome-based only. Language & Keyboard settings : french (fr) ISO size: 694.2 MB License: same as Fedora Core 5 Test 3 username = root password = fedora

why french? because he had already an iso for a French project and to promote FC5 as well.
