Unhappy newbie having problem whit boot


Ello ello...

Someone told me (not in this forum) that I should download fedora linux, because it was a good linux for noobīs.

I downloaded the 4 isoīs and burned them... but I canīt boot from the cdīs. On redhats homepage they talked about an boot.iso, but I cant find that iso file nowhere on the net.

What am I doing wrong here?

Is there some other linux that would be more suited for me, since I never even laid eye on an linux machine before...

Some simples questions:
1)did you see if the "md5sum" of the iso.image are correct?
2) Your PCś bios boot sequence ist place to: CD, HD, etc ...(CD must be the first!)?
3)Did you dont simplely copied de iso.image to the CDs and not, as ist the corrrect, burned a bootable CD (see what type of archive exist in your CDs!)
4)Finally, take care with that, about HD geometry:
