Question problem in installing fedora 10?

hi all,
i am absolute novice to linux.
i am keen to learn to use it so downloaded an iso image of fedora from torrents.
burnt the image onto dvd.
now when i am tying to boot from cd ..after a first few steps it pops an error stating " no fedora image found in any of ur cdrom drives".
someone please guide me how to go about installing it..

Which "first few steps" were done?

Provide details on the process. But it's likely your dvd installer is having problem. If not then it's your dvd drive.

Try download it again using .torrent and burn.

The menu also includes a choice to test the media. Try that as well.
