Followed the instructions - downloaded and ran fine, except it did not
seem to recognise my distribution (Fedora Core 1). This is the error

"The installer was unable to identify your operating system.
Please mail the full text of this error to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Hope that this helps.
