    7272<li>Download Fedora 2.2.1 from <a href="http://www.fedora.info/download/">http://www.fedora.info/download/</a>.<br /> 
    73 (Although I've not tried it, you could also try Fedora 2.2.2 or even Fedora 3 which are available from <a href="http://www.fedora-commons.org/developers/index.php">the Fedora Commons main page</a>.)

    7474</li> 
    7575<li>Extract it. 
    7676</li> 
    77 <li>Make sure you have the environment variables set as described in Preliminary Steps above.  
    78 In an Linux x-term, move into extracted directory (e.g. fedora-2.2.1-src/) and type in xterm: 
     77<li>Make sure you have the environment variables set as described in Preliminary Steps above. 
     78</li> 
     79</ol>  
     80 
     81If using Linux, then do the following from an x-term. If you're on Windows, do the same from a DOS prompt: 
     82<ol> 
     83<li>Move into the extracted directory (e.g. fedora-2.2.1-src/) and type: 
    7984<pre>ant installer</pre> 
    8085Then go into the dist folder of the extraction directory (e.g. fedora-2.2.1-src/dist/) and type: 
     
    8489</li> 
    8590<li>Accept everything as given and set a password for your Fedora Administrator account whose default username is "fedoraAdmin". 
    86 By accepting the defaults, it will the server is set to run on localhost, port 8080 (with shutdown port 8005). 
     91By accepting the defaults, the server will be set to run on localhost, port 8080 (with shutdown port 8005).<br /> 
     92<b>Note:</b> if you have Greenstone 3 installed at port 8080 as well, then you should not be running both at the same time (they will conflict and probably neither will work). You will need to stop Greenstone 3 in order to run Fedora on the same port, and stop Fedora to run Greenstone 3 again on the same port. Alternatively, you can choose to <a href="http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Walkthrough:_installing_Greenstone_3_from_SVN_source#Changing_the_port_number_where_tomcat_is_installed">change the port on which Greenstone 3 runs</a>.
