I just download VMWARE Player, and I also download a Fedora 8 virtual appliance....I started the appliance, and it showed that there were 256 updates that needed to be installed.  In trying to do so, Fedora asked for "CD 1".....with the Fedroa OS being a "image"....I don't have "CD 1"......

any suggestions on how I can get back this..install the updates, and move ahed  ?

Check /etc/yum.conf and /etc/apt/sources.list .. see if there's a path to your CDROM drive.. if there is one.. delete the line and try again.

Those are textfiles and you must be root to edit them.
