You need to find an option to burn it as an iso image. Then it will
be bootable. If you just use the default options you will just end up with
a copy of the iso file which serves only as an nonbootable back up.

When you have cut that disc, reboot from it and it will go into the 
program for Fedora. The instalation is very straightforward
except that it starts by checking the checksum of the DVD
and will probably fail it. For a workaround see:
