Are you sure this is the right version for your architecture?
Some distros come with only 32 bit support, or you have to download a different version of the distro.

I looked at fedora's home. they do have different versions.
If you don't think that's your problem, try another live cd/dvd.

Mmmm - after many years avoiding Redhat derived distros (since a total fsck-up on RH9), I too decided to try Fedora 8 last weekend.
What a bloody fiasco - totally unusable.

@cimegak, is that the only message you get ???. Just try hitting <enter>; any difference ???.
