Next time round  with FC6, I will prefer a disc less install.
Mount iso's on a spare HDD and use askmethod.

What hurts more than the cost of CD is the cost towards lost peace of mind
for the extended period while CD are to be burned at extra low 2x/4x/nx
speeds, media checked plus SHA1SUM checked on CD - yes,  still with no
guarantee that the damn thing will work.

This all is despite having given all due consideration to selection of a
good computer configuration, hardware including good and not-the-cheapest
CDVD-burner, a good software updated to most current, buying best quality
media kept always in wraps to avoid dust - what more - may be someone will
suggest, you are welcome!

Further extending the r*nt, it is the irksome feeling, that something is
failing on you. Inability to fix the root-cause.

I wonder, is it only fedora? or other *nix CD-s also irk-itch like that.
Don't mind fellas but guidos CD-s do not suck like that.
