I am installing by burning boot.iso on a disk. The problem is, I don't know what to enter here
http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/fedora-install-guide-en/fc5/figs/ftpsetup.png
I don't have a server. Does anyone know a public server for downloading? I have tried the mirrors but what i do is...

ftp://ftp.isu.edu.tw/pub/Linux/Fedora/linux/core/5/i386/os
FTP Site Name: ftp.isu.edu.tw
Fedora Core Directory: /pub/Linux/Fedora/linux/core/5/i386/os

BUT I GET AN ERROR: ftp.isu.edu.tw is not a valid hostname

wtf.

Yes. I still get an error. Does that mean I have to build my own mirror?

You typed the site name and directory correctly. The error may be caused by incorrect TCP/IP configuration in the previous step: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/fedora-install-guide-en/fc5/ch-other-install-methods.html#sn-installer-tcpip

Yes, name server is the same as DNS server. Pick one of the two and enter its IP address in the TCP/IP configuration screen.
