Is there a place that I can download Fedora 7 as CDs and not a DVD. I have a CD burner, but no DVD burner.

You can download a Live CD, either Gnome or KDE, by going to one of the mirrors http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/Fedora/7/ and selecting "releases" > "7" > "Live" > "i386"

Now, most of the mirrors show that the download will be slightly over 700meg and you may or may not have luck with that, but a few of the mirrors have the same versions that are slightly less than 700 meg. I used one of those with complete success; installer is part of the Live CD. This isn't the mirror site I used, but it's got the smaller version: http://srl.cs.jhu.edu/YUM/fedora/releases/7/Live/i386/

The live version is a CD size when burned to a 703 MB media.
It is in decimal because it is on a USA sever and on a USA disk drive MFG'er.
At least that's the marketing pitch for selling less for more. :)

The live has an install option after it is up and running (icon on the desktop)
You will need a bit more memory than the minimum, like 378. 512 is preferred.

The live cd is your only offical option. Fedora no longer has the multiple cd install as an option. You just download the extra packages you want via yum.
