You have not explained what your actual goal is, beyond just using a computer that runs linux -- which apparently you've already been doing anyway for ~10 years. To be totally honest (since this is definitely an "opinion based" question), all the fussing with different distros borderline absurd. This is not to say they aren't different in superficial ways, ...
Since partition E: is, and partition and F: is almost empty, you should (under Windows) move what data you need that is on F: to C: and then delete the E: and F: partitions. That way you create space for a 350Gb+ partition for Linux, which I think should be enough for any DVD install.
From the GNOME3 FAQ in the ArchLinux Wiki: excerpt Gnome 3.10 UI elements scale incorrectly With 3.10 Gnome introduced HDPI support. If your displays EDID info does not contain the correct screen size, but the resolution is right, this can lead to incorrectly scaled UI elements.

SELinux makes use of extended attributes that can appended to the directory structures on the disk. Think if these as meta data. Access Control Lists (ACLs) being another. The extended attributes that you need to append to a directory are called contexts and SELinux acts like a traffic cop, making sure that an executable that has certain contexts is ...
Wow, so you never used yum with Fedora 12 ?!!? I'm guessing you installed everything by downloading and rpm? This is going to be like a trip to the future, lol. Rip Van Winkle and all that. Anyway, the live DVD just contains enough stuff to do a basic install. For the past half dozen years or so, beyond that the norm is to use a networked package ...

If you have sudo privileges you should be able to do this: $ sudo system-config-printer If this dialog cannot come up after providing credentials to sudo then the credentials that you're being asked for are likely for a CUPS server that isn't necessarily your local server. This is the system whose username/password you're being prompted for.
You can use the Fedora Installation Guide's instructions to set up a yum repository that refers to the DVD, if that's what you want to do, however, if you have network connectivity, you really ought to get your software updates off the Fedora mirrors.
This looks to be a bug. See this ticket titled: Bug 984764 - bind-chroot-9.9.3-3.P1.fc19.x86_64 failed to start. The fix is to add this to your named.conf file: pid-file "/var/run/named/named.pid"; There are additional tips in the ticket with respect to getting your system back into a state where you can successfully run Bind afterwards.
These .jar files are not really being installed into the /etc directory. There's a software package called alternatives which maintains a set of Unix links which allows a system to have multiple versions of tools with the same name. In this case those names would be the executables that are included with Java. The multiple versions would be typically ...
