It looks like you've burned the images correctly, but they were the
wrong images.
These are the "source" ISO files that I think you have:
[ ] FC3-i386-SRPMS-disc1.iso         03-Nov-2004 17:11   563M  
[ ] FC3-i386-SRPMS-disc2.iso         03-Nov-2004 17:12   563M  
[ ] FC3-i386-SRPMS-disc3.iso         03-Nov-2004 17:13   562M  
[ ] FC3-i386-SRPMS-disc4.iso         03-Nov-2004 17:15   562M  

These are the "binary" ISO files that you actually need:
[ ] FC3-i386-disc1.iso               03-Nov-2004 17:05   617M  
[ ] FC3-i386-disc2.iso               03-Nov-2004 17:07   638M  
[ ] FC3-i386-disc3.iso               03-Nov-2004 17:08   637M  
[ ] FC3-i386-disc4.iso               03-Nov-2004 17:10   386M
