OK-both of you can boot from USB right?
if you can boot from USB or even floppy-we can install Fedora 10.
As an alternative-download the Fedora-10-i386-netinst.iso or the NetbootCD-2.2.iso
Now, if using the NetbootCD it also can net-install Debian/Ubuntu/OpenSuse/Mandriva/CentOS/and Slackware 12.2-but you gotta know all the mirrors for Slackware.
Do you have a USB port that it can boot from??
If you have USB port but can't boot from-do you have a floppy drive??
I'm assuming you have a bootable USB port-if you don't post back and I'll tell you how to with a floppy drive...
Anyway-download either one and extract the iso to a folder-in Ubuntu just right-click on the iso-select "extract here".
Go into the folder it made-for this one we're gonna do fedora10 netinstall,
in the fedora 10 folder will be 2 folders-"images" and "isolinux".
Go into the isolinux folder ( goto the top of the file browser-click "edit"-now click "select all" and then "cut") and move all that stuff back up into the fedora 10 folder-now delete the empty "isolinux" folder.
Find the isolinux.cfg file-rename it "syslinux.cfg" by right-clicking on it-"rename".
Open the syslinux.cfg with a text editor-right-click-"open with...text editor".
Now put a "/" in front of all these words-
Now-sometimes "vesamneu.c32" doesn't work-So where it says "DEFAULT /boot/vesamuenu.c32" change it to
APPEND initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw noauto load=netbootcd-startup.lzm noload=002;003;004;005;006
You won't get a splash screen so just hit enter when it boots up and says "boot-"
So just put that "/" wherever you see the words above in the syslinux.cfg.
Now-there's two ways to get SYSLINUX (ldlinux.sys) onto your USB-through the terminal or manually-
Terminal first-simply type "syslinux -s /dev/sdxx" where "xx" is your USB-if your USB is sdf1 it would be "syslinux -s /dev/sdf1" that will install syslinux to the USB-BUT IF YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR USB YOU COULD INSTALL IT TO YOUR HARD DRIVE-BE CAREFUL!
The manual way is easier and safer! Download "Billix" for USB-
Now, same thing-extract Billix to a folder-go into the Billix folder and find "ldlinux.sys"-this is SYSLINUX! Move/copy this into your USB by using copy/paste-now you have syslinux installed to USB!
Set the "bootable flag" on your USB by opening Gparted-select "Gparted" up top and select "devices" and you should see the usb-it should look like this(the highlighted blue line-screenshot.
Right-click on the blue line-select "manage flags" and check the "boot" flag.
Your almost done=Now you must know the URL for the full Fedora10-here's the Fedora10DVD url-
Your set-reboot and download Fedora!
NetbootCD should have the mirrors for you, maybe-here's the usb install-
As before extract the netbootcd iso to a folder-if an error comes up you can use "Gmountiso"-right-click on the iso and select "open with Gmountiso"-when it opens click the "open" tab for the "mount point"-choose CDROM0 or whatever.
Now hit the mount button-Now hit the "jump to" button.
A folder will open up with the iso contents-go to the top of the browser and click "edit", "select all", and "copy"-it won't make a folder so paste the contents into an empty folder.
OK-now go into the netbootcd "boot" folder-now rename "slax.cfg" to "syslinux.cfg". Now-right-click on the new syslinux.cfg-"copy"-Now go into the syslinux folder-right click on any empty area and select "paste"-then choose "replace" when the thing pops up.
Now go back up to the top folder where the "boot", "slax", "gpl-2.0.txt", and gpl-3.0.txt" is-again paste the syslinux.cfg here.
Now-copy all that to your USB Drive-not the top folder-just the folders and files-"boot", "slax", "gpl-2.0.txt", and gpl-3.0.txt".
Now move the ldlinux.sys you got from Billix to the USB (copy/paste)
That's it Reboot and choose the fedora 10 netinstall from the netbootcd after it boots up.
Additionally you could try to get anaconda to find the iso on your HD but good luck.
