Help Installing FC7


I'm looking to install FC7 and I guess on this release they aren't making CD iso's available for download. The box I'm installing on only has a cd drive. Can someone explain to a newbie an alternative way to install FC7 that is somewhat simplistic?

TIA

Use the (single) LiveCD. You can install directly from that.

The CDs are in a folder called "Live"--here is the mirror list:http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/Fedora/7/

If you go to the Fedora page and go to "torrents", what they are doing becomes clearer.

The x86_64 Live images must be burned to a DVD; they are too large for a CD. You can install the i686 image from a CD.

Thanks all! I'm downloading the Fedora-7-Live-i686.torrent now and will give it a whirl. If I have any issues I'll be sure to post ;-)

I burned the Fedora-7-Live-i686 torrent, tried to boot from the cd and I get this error:

Boot from ATAPI CD:Rom
No Emulation

ISOLINUX 3.36

Any thoughts on why this is occurring?

Did you md5sum the download? Did you disconnect external (USB/Firewire) devices before booting? Your machine may simply not support "no emulation" mode (vs. floppy mode) properly - a common problem for machines greater than 4 years old. Are you running the latest BIOS available?
