Needed by the second class:
16 Live CD''' (x86_64). You can burn this from ISO image on a CD or a DVD using the Freedom Toaster (in the Open Lab) -- however, this machine has problems with some types of DVDs. The image is also available from:#* http://belmont.senecac.on.ca/fedora/releases/ 16/Live/x86_64/Fedora- 16-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso - Seneca's mirror of the Fedora project. This is very fast, but is only accessible from within Seneca's network (you can't access this from home). You can burn this disc on the machines in the Open Lab.#* http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/ - Fedora mirror list accessible from any Internet connection. Make sure you download Fedora 16. Labs may not work with other versions.
# '''SATA Hard disk in removable drive tray''' (at least 160GB). Please buy the tray from ACS or the bookstore as not all trays are compatible.
# '''USB flash drive''' (2GB or larger recommended). Warning: anything on this flash drive will be erased!

= Tips and Suggestions =
* Always shut down your system under software control, rather than using the reset or power buttons. You can shutdown using the GUI or with the <code>poweroff</code>, <code>reboot</code>, <code>init</code>, or <code>shutdown</code> commands.
Shut down your virtual machines before shutting down your main system.
* If you get a message about the gnome-power-manager configuration at the login screen, you may have run out of disk space. Switch to a character-mode virtual terminal (for example, switch to VT2 by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2). Login and take a look at the available space (with the command: <code>df -h</code>). If the <code>/</code> filesystem is full, delete some files (such as unused VM images in <code>/var/lib/libvirt/images</code>) and then reboot the system.
