Well i just got FC6 DVD iso and then found out my dvd burner is broken... lol and i was so excited
Sooo what are my options, is it possiblt to break it into normal Cd's?
Could i mount the iso on another computer and assess it with say FC5 rescue disks and install it or something?

try downloading the rescue cd iso then create a new partition or use a spare , exract the dvd iso to that partition .
boot up using the rescue cd type in the command "linux" when booting then when asked select local install , then you can install from your harddrive leigh

Ok, you can actually do a network install from the information on the iso. First you have to mount the iso on another computer and then copy all of the files on the iso to a directory. Then you need to make an nfs share on this computer. You can do this in linux and windows as well just check out this link http://www.microsoft.com/technet/interopmigration/unix/sfu/default.mspx and you should be able to install it. Then you need to burn the first fedora disc for the version that matches the iso. Boot the computer you're installing fedora on with this disc. When the prompt comes up enter "linux askmethod" and it should give you the option to install it from various sources including the disc, nfs share, and some others. After choosing nfs share it should give you options on setting up networking for this computer and information for the nfs server. If you have trouble with this, it might be easier to do it by setting up an ftp server on the computer with the copied iso files. From my experiences, you'll see a much faster installation than you would've with the burned DVD. Good luck, and post again if you run into any trouble.
