I'm trying to use the documentation and have run into a problem. I'm trying to load my SD card and am using the method given in the Wiki as the easiest by downloading the Fedora Installer. When I opened the installer, a command prompt window opened and Vista asked me if I wanted to allow Diskpart to run. Because of the warnings on the wiki about data loss/system damage, I'm wary about allowing anything I don't understand - I'm assuming the program will partition my disk. Is that OK to allow?bredman wrote:A lot of people are getting confused because the RPi is not ready for beginners yet. Remember that this is only the developer release. This is why there is so little documentation available at the moment. All of the gurus are busy writing documentation like the wiki, the magazines, and the educational documents.
Since you have accidentally wandered into a developer release, you may be tempted to put your RPi into a drawer until next winter. Please don't do this. You can help by trying to use the documentation that we have available and let us know how it feels to you. It's not enough for the documentation to be technically correct, it must also be approachable for the new users.
So this is a call to all new users - please do your best to struggle along for the moment. You can do your bit to pave the way for those following behind. And no matter how frustrating you find it, remember that every mistake will help you learn a bit more.

When we downloaded Debian6, it installed, we Started our Rasberry PI
