Question Fedora live cd


I burned Fedora 10, live cd image to disc, I wanted to try it out b4 installing onto my PC, and not sure how to run it.
When I insert the disc it doesnt have run/exe option, only open folder to view files.

You have to boot the computer from the CD (or DVD)

Put the CD/DVD in the drive.

Restart the computer and hit the key to go into the BIOS setup--F12, F2, maybe DEL (It generally appears on the screen during startup)

In the BIOS setup,make sure that it is set to boot a CD or DVD before going to the hard disk.

Exit the BIOS setup, continue booting and you will come up in the Linux "Live CD" mode.

To add to that...why are you using Fedora Live 10?? 13 was released, and it also has a live version, probably with better hardware support. If you're going to try it, try the latest version.

To expand, Fedora will not be updating older versions...

So, after I shutdown from Fedora and eject the disc, everything will run as b4?

When you run from a CD or DVD, nothing on your hard drive is disturbed so---yes---everything will be the way you left it.

You CAN write to the disk while running the live CD, but it would take a few steps and it would have to be intentional.

Keep in mind that live CDs are for quick evaluation---to get full performance from Linux, you have to install it to the hard drive.
