make sure your system is set to boot from DVD instead of HardDrive.

when you turn on your machine, there should be a momentary (a second or
so) message saying something like "Press F11 to change boot order". You
need to change the boot order so the DVD is first.
In some cases, you may need to go into to BIOS setup to do it. All
systems are a little different.

when you say "unzip" above, what do you mean?

the DVDs should be written directly to DVD - there is no unzipping
involved. the files you download should be complete DVD images.


what files are you downloading? (provide URLs)

Hear the link is
http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora
from this above link i download the i386 DVD image


this is the one you want.
http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso

you should download that, then burn it to DVD. Note that the extension
is .iso, not .zip


The file is a DVD image. When burning to DVD, make sure you choose to
burn as an image. Otherwise you will have a DVD which has a single large
file on it.
