I've been interested for quite some time in the Raspberry Pi Single board computer but as a Java programmer, I felt that it had insufficient memory for my needs.  So, I acquired a cubietruck which has quite a bit more memory that the Raspberry Pi.  I thought that I'd share my experience in installing Fedora 20 Linux on the cubietruck.

My goal was to install Fedora 20 on the cubietruck and run it from a 512GB SSD Drive that I had and to get it running on my home wifi network with a static IP address.  The remainder of this article details the steps I went through to get it up and running.
