Help finding Fedora Core 6

Could someone point me to a live link where I can get the Fedora Core 6 live CD?

All links that I try, even the Fedora website, are no longer active.

Its because Fedora Core 6 is old, the current version is Fedora 8, unless you have some special reason you need Fedora Core 6, you should get Fedora 8

Each Fedora release goes through two successive six month support cycles. We are now at 8 and 9 is on its way so I am not suprised if you can't find Fedora 6 anymore. If you need something well-tested with longer support cycles, look into CentOS.
