i only have access to windows 2000/xp machines but am trying to download and install fedora... i have downloaded the 4 iso images to a 2000 server and then created 4 cdroms. I thought that the first cdrom would be bootable but i can't get anything to boot from it.  Im sure im doing something wrong,, im new to linux.  I used roxio easy cd creator to burn the 4 iso  files to the 4 cds.  what do i need to do?

thanks

From memory there should be a file called boot.img.

This is a boot disk image for the Fedora Install, burn this image to CD and it should be able to boot up and start your install.

Cheers

Just to make sure you dint overlook this
you have to burn the cd as iso disk images ( Nero has that option) and not just
copy the iso files to a cd.

Easycd can burn iso images as well. Still you don't have to just create a compilation containing the iso file, but actually burning the iso image directly. (i think it's in the file menu, but I'm not sure).
If you look at the cd content from windows, do you see just one iso file (bad) or a whole lot of files?

i did have just the one iso file,, which i suspected couldn't be right.... i reburned the cds with easycd directly like you mentioned from the file menu and now i have many files on the cd so im sure that resolved my problem.  thanks
