I mean is your hard disk SATA or IDE .
Whatever Fedora 9 will work on both of them.
Please give details about your partitions you created on hard disk.

Go to fedoraproject.org and Download. You need to write it to DVD using Nero or something like that *using the raw option*. In this option you will have .ISO in the drop down list. DONT write the ISO file to disc eg. by dropping the ISO file into the stuff-to-be-written window, you will waste the disc.

if you do not have much experience fedora / linux i would not install fedora 9 ( the first update will fix most things )
some hardware may fail to work ( network mostly )
i would burn fedora 8 dvd and install it . Then with some exp. under your belt ( 6 mo. ) install 9
but then again you might not have a single problem with 9

for emergency's i use InfraRecorder cd/dvd recorder on win xp
http://infrarecorder.sourceforge.net/
it is easy to use ( cygwin1.dll included)
