ultramancool - I tried smart boot manager but I could never figure out how to use it. if you could explain it a bit more in depth

wpn146 - I have looked at what you said previously however with fedora core 2 the bootdisk.img is over 6 megs ment for usb devices that your bios can support it. (which mine doesnt)

david_ross - I do know it works because on my old harddrive that was in it before I started this linux endeavor I had windows on it. and was using it fine.

also I want to thank everybody for helping me out. sorry if I seem stupid when it comes to computers but I always want to try something different. and I was also want to become more effiecient in linux

well actually I finally got fedora core 2 to install. This is what I did and it will probably sound stupid but it worked

I downloaded smart boot manager(which I tried earlier with no success) put it in the computer came to the screen which you select what you want to boot from. pressed enter on the cdrom. it gave me errors and just kept pressing enter it all of a sudden it started booting from cdrom. dont ask me what happened it just started to work.

I want to thank everybody for giving their advice in helping me get this installed.
