First of all I'm pretty sure we are not all 'gays' here. Second did you burn the iso as data i.e. if you look at the disc in a filemanager do you see several files or just one? If you see just one file then you have burned incorrectly. What error message (if any) do you get when you try to boot from the dvd?

Also Fedora 13 is no longer supported. Unless you need it for some legacy software I suggest downloading the latest version.

It's by mistake, sorry for that..... you mean i should first extract the iso file and then burn it to dvd.....???
if i do this, is it boot automatically?

No. If you burn a DVD, you are most likely burning it as a data DVD, which would create a filesystem in the DVD and put the iso file in it. This is wrong, since an ISO image is actually the raw data that is supposed to be written right to the disc, with no filesystem. If you are using a GUI burning tool, it should have a "burn image" option or something like that.

And again, unless you have a really good reason to be using outdated software, do not use Fedora 13. Get the newest version.
