    I am not looking for a floppy distro, I want to use a cd to boot into the fedora that I have on my hard drive.

    U can use various burning kits to create a bootable cd-rom.
    K3B using linux.
    Or Nero, Easy CD Creator when using Windows.

    Or read one of the following links

    Thanks,. those are some good links. I just would rather have my bootloader on cd than a floppy.
