I have a lovely little compaq presario c700 or something like that (I'm not exactly sure) and I would like to install fedora on it. The problem is, the pc was purchased with no driver cd (or it has been lost) so how would I install the drivers? Even if we did find the driver cd would it even work in Linux? I'm lost! Please help!

Most if not all drivers for hardware is included within the kernel. You won't need a driver cd as you would have if you were installing windows.

As by the looks of it that laptop isn't new so I would recommend LXDE for speed and performance. Just make sure you download the 32-bit ISO file. And as always burn on the lowest possible speed.
