Are u sure your cdrom is set to bootable within bios. Read motherboard manual for insructions on setting the boot sequence.

If you can't find your motherboard manual (I sure as hell don't know where mine is), try searching online for the particular key that will put you into BIOS for your system. On most computers pressing one of the F keys, Esc, or ~ shortly after powering on will do the trick. Once you're in BIOS find the booting options, and ensure that CD booting has a higher priority than harddisk booting. If you're trying to dual boot or something, or for whatever other reason currently have one of the newer Windows versions (I know XP has this function for sure) there is a place under Control Panel you can edit BIOS settings. Try your Windows help to find it. Cheers,

I have an error like;

"hdd: lost interrupt" while booting the first fedore core 4 cd. So I could not download the os.

What can it be at all?
