How to boot from floppy to install Fedora 9 from CD?
 
Hi,
I've downloaded Fedora 9 and burned onto 6 CDs in ISO format hoping to install on an old PC in place of WinME. I find that the PC won't boot from the CD drive - probably too old.

How can I proceed? Do I need boot.img? Where can I get it from?

Thanks, Chris

The Fedora boot disk got too big to fit on any floppy disk some time ago.
