You are in the wrong place. We do not answer anything about
Linux/Fedora whatever. BTW off the list, go and check the audio cable
on your CDROM drive.

You can install FBSD on the same system as dual boot. Although I do
not have a valid reason why one would run Linux when he/she is also
running FBSD.

For running FBSD, without X windows, any hardware can go through. For
example you can get hold of a 386 with 16 MB RAM and a 700MB hard disk
and run FBSD like wind.
