Fedora 6 Bootable DVD from ISO images


hello

Ive made a bootable DVD from the 3.28 GB ISO image.
But when i try to install Fedora 6, it asks for a bootable diskette in a floppy drive. Mine isnt working.

Can anyone suggest me the alternative??

You will need to change the BIOS settings to boot from CD/DVD rather than floppy.

Regards

Does the DVD work in any other computer? You may have a faulty DVD burn there.

The Fedora ISO's use "sha1sum" not "md5sum".
If you are using Linux and the DVD.iso is in your home directory you would open a terminal and enter eg:
Code:
$ sha1sum DVD.iso
and after a short period of time depending on the size of the .iso you will get the result in the terminal.

If you are using Windows to check the DVD.iso you will need a utility such as "HashCalc" to get the "sha1sum".
