I think installing Fedora 8 would generally be a bad idea. Security update support for Fedora 8 ended more than 6 months ago. Thus, either you need to apply security-relevant patches yourself or be stuck with a vulnerable system.

Moreover, if you have enough RAM for Fedora 8, you likely have enough RAM for Fedora 9 or 10 as well.

I agree. If you want to give us your system specifications, we can help you find a distribution that suits you :)

You should use 11 if your system can handle it, as jasperjones and Pyroflea said 8 is old and isn't getting any security or other updates. [ fixed typo ]

10 and 11 will be supported until 12 comes out, after that 11 and 12 will be supported.

Good luck :)

I wish Fedora made LTS releases.

Fedora now ( as of version 10 ) supports easily upgrading from one version to the next so this is not as big a problem as it used to be.

In the past you could do an upgrade from the DVD but it wasn't as easy.
