fedora install problem

I downloaded and burned the fedora isos, but it won't run the install program. I also made a boot disc however when I use it I only get as far as the select language screen, from there I can't do anything. could anyone be of help?

I already have windows XP on it but it gets corrupted every 3-7 days (compaq just reloads the software and says that nothings wrong) so I want to try linux until I can figure this out.

I'm using a compaq presario 2145CA laptop with:
Athlon 2400+ processor
60 gig HD (I have a partition set up for linux already)
512 ram

Did you check the md5sum to make sue that the download was OK? maybe your download images are corrupted.

when I restart my laptop with the first disk in the drive nothing happens and it starts windows, I'm going to have to check the iso I suppose.
