Default Installing Linux

If I wanted to replace Windows with something like Linux from Fedora how would I go about that? I know I can download from their site but without a physical disk how would I load it onto the comp after removing Windows?

You would need to burn the ISO to a cd.

it's easiest with a CD/DVD.
but if you want to use a USB you can do so. you need to download a program that makes it possible though.
Here is a link that shows how it works and have the download links.

Hi KwlSwim3

Run the Linux CD live and see what you think to the OS first (there are a few different types of Linux)

Do most versions of Linux let you dual boot with Windows because I used Linux mint and that let me dual boot with Windows..
