Installing Fedora core 5 on Laptop, how do i install CD-2 to Cd5?

First, thanks for looking in to this question. Please throw some ideas that may work.
Here the problem is
I am trying to install fedora core 5 on my IBM laptop.
I removed all partitions ( I guess I didnít create swap area)
I installed first cd successfully (I guess!)
Now I am able to boot laptop in text mode when try to start startx, I found that startx (xorg) is there in system at all.
Now my question is how & when do we install cd2,3,4 &5
How do I start x windows

am i doing any basic/stupid mistake?

THanks for you time and ideas.

Think you may have slipped up somewhere - installer should ask for cds 2-5 automatically during installation.
