Can't install Fedora 5


I downloaded Fedora core install CD-1, and I didn't get the other CDs; because there was a problem with downloading CD-2, and that thing is requiered.

I dowonloaded the Fedora DVD, and store it in one of HD partitions.
While booting from CD-1, I used "LINUX ASKMETHOD" order, and followed the all steps until choosing the directory that holds the DVD ISO file.But, it said: That dir doesn't contain any image.

Please help.

When you download a disk image (CD or DVD) you have to burn it to a disk using the option in the recorder to "burn from image" or "burn from iso"--or soemthing similar. Just copying the .iso file does nothing for you.

Burn a DVD from the iso file and boot from that. Or finish downloading the CDs. Mixing the CD install with the DVD install is probably not going to work.

I don't have a DVD-RW that's why I asked that question.
