how to F 10 from DVD iso image on hard disk without a CD W or Floppy to boot


i hope i made the subject of this thread explain my problem. I have i386 architecture having window XP running on it.i want to install Fedora 10 on my system. Lately i had installed FC5 on my system and for that i used CD-ROM but now i have DVD ISO images on one of the two hard drive that i have on my system. I dont have a floppy drive to make a bootable floppy and neither do i have a cd writer to create a bootable cd. I have win 98 and FC 5 cd that i can boot the system from.
can any one help me out here.

You can use unetbootin to extract the iso to usb stick and make the usb stick bootable.
Look at unetbootin.sourceforge.net

What do you want to do ? You said you have F10 iso and do not have dvd burner to burn the iso to dvd.
There is no need fior FC5 cd. Just download unetbootin from sourceforge and use it to make your usb stick bootable with F10 image.
