1. You have the CDs for a 64-bit processor. Is your PC equipped with
an AMD Athlon 64 or Opteron?
2. Did you properly burn the CDs? You need to create a CD from a
image file. You can examine the list archives for proper creation
instructions. My short instruction is "Double-click on each .iso file
and let your CD burner application take control". If you do not have
file association working, just right-click the .iso file, select "open
with" and choose the CD burner application.
3. Why are you using an outdated distribution? The current release is
Fedora Core 3 (Heidelberg). Get the latest from
if you actually have a 64-bit processor.
