I downloaded and burned .iso cd (and DVD).

when I restart the computer with the CD in it I get something like :

caldera ....
A):


and it waits for me to type in something.. but I don't know what next.
I couldn't find any thing like that in the fedora installation guide..

thanks.

You do mention "the CD". There is no installation CD for Fedora 16, but there is a Live CD. Use the installation DVD to install Fedora.

No idea where "caldera" is coming from.

burn the cd in a slow speed because sometimes problems may happen!

Did you check the downloaded files (http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html/Burning_ISO_images_to_disc/sect-Burning_ISO_images_to_disc-Validating_the_Files.html) before burning? How did you burn (http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html/Burning_ISO_images_to_disc/sect-Burning_ISO_images_to_disc-Burning.html) the discs? What do you see on the disc when you list the contents under Windows?

O.K. You might have done this already - still - Did you check the image checksums and compared it to the ones of the fedora website? Just wondering if there was a problem in the downloaded file ...

thank you,
I didn't see these pages of validations..

I just sha256 the file and it came out right. I'll test it again later today and let you know how I did.

again
thank you for your reply (everybody).
