ftp or http network install w/ fedora c4

I am attempting to install Fedora Core 4 on a laptop. The internal cd/dvd rom is burned out so I have to use an external dvd rom to boot off of the fedora dvd. When the dvd boots it comes up with a screen to asking where the source files are // cd/dvd rom, harddrive, http, ftp etc.// I can't get the install to run off of the external dvd rom. So when I go to the ftp or http install method I use the auto detect network settings but, what do I have to put in the "ftp or http site name" and Fedora core directory?

Not sure, but when I host I get an IP address of Try google linux to check the fedora install documentation and see if they point you to a particular server...
