Don't bother with Fedora 8, as it's no longer supported. Get a newer release instead. Did you look at the Fedora download page? You can find links to get the ISO images there.

As an aside, I don't know what you mean by "not CD or DVD". ISO images are CD or DVD images..

First of all, please write out words in full. From what you've posted, it looks like your download of the file didn't complete (which is why it ends in ".part"). Also, you've downloaded a Windows executable, which you won't be able to run in Linux. You'll have to let the download finish (or download again) and then run the executable from Windows.

The file you downloaded is for installing a Ubuntu One-client on Windows, not for installing Windows in a VM on Linux.
