    When you download the ISO, make sure you burn it as an ISO, not copy it. Set your BIOS to boot from the cd/dvd drive, and restart your computer with the burned disk in the drive. It should boot your computer into a live session from which you can try fedora, or install it to your HDD.

    a little more info, please

    thanks MASONTX.

    my query was based on my experience with windows iso, where a set-up exe, and other files make a bootable cd/dvd, but no more iso inside.

    but in Fedora, live cd is found as iso inside the original iso.
    this confuses me.
    may be Linux is made this way.

    i'll make a bootable flash drive &try it!
    because i want to avoid installing a 3 year old Debian linux from dvd[BOSS LINUX]

    TANX again bro!

    There's a folder called isolinux in the Fedora 17 iso I have downloaded but no second iso file
