using fedora core 2 as desktop server to host website

***Quotation are for lack of a better word.****

Summary: Newbie, with GUI FEDORA CORE 2 installed, trying to run as a server to host a website. Just recently tried to install update to fedora 5, however grub has corrupted BIOS and I'm unable to boot from cd. Now, I'm at the point....where i just need to know where to go from here.

In "detail":
-The steps I've taken to solve booting form cd:
******Fedora Core 5 iso****
1. changed boot sequence
2. changed the cd drive
3 stopped using the usb keyboard/mouse->I read about how the motherboard or processor or whatever, can't keep up with the keyboards and mice that use the usb port.<- Which took me to the point were the start up screen displays a " I'm trying to boot from the cd now message." Soon after a " Failure to boot" appears and I'm take to the grub screen.

-Hosting site:
1. installed the server version fedora 2
2. tried to access network, FAILURE
3. I'm not sure if my NIC is bad, but there is a light that comes on when connect the cat5.
4. ifconfig show some network stuff that of course I don't understand.

I just need to know some advice. Or a place to find the information. Something
