FC4-i386-SRPMS-disc1,2,3,4 ok and it's .iso

or should i extrat them then burn them.
what i ve did is i extrat the first disk and burn it to try if it will boot and it did'nt.
i don't know how to boot my computer to start the installation.
i also try to boot it from a flash memory with the file diskboot.img but it did'nt work.
do i need to have a linux version to install it , coz i m on windows.
sorry for my bad english and thanks for help.

Hate to tell you but you downloaded the wrong files. For installing FC4, you want the iso images like this. FC4-i386-disc1.iso

also, you might want to understand what iso is... this is an image of a cdrom. Whenever you burn something the first step is to make an iso file out of the data you wish to burn. When making an iso you also 'suggest' it is a boot disk (see http://www.coofercat.com/wiki/CustomFedoraBootableCD). So as for your question - yes you burn the iso. How to do it on non-Unix system... I hae no idea :confused: but I found this http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm

If you are using Windows XP now, you might want to use this program for burning. It's always worked well for me. Once you've downloaded the four FC-4 files, just click on the ISO button and let it do it's thing!

Thanks you very much, but one quest when i download those files and burn them the first one will be bootable directly or shoud i add any more files to the first disk burning ?

You will be able to install as soon as you've burned them. Keep in mind that you're going to have to partition your hard drive if you plan to keep Windows in place. If so, you might want to check out this link: http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_4_installation_notes.html
