    Hi All,

    Thanks for all the suggestions for helping me install Fedora 9. Finally I did it. Used the Unetbootint tool as suggested by Jay (thanks Jay !!). Though it did not work out completely as expected, but I succeeded finally. Here is what I did.

    (1) downloaded the Unetbootin (exe for windows) from their website
    (2) ran the UnetBootIn exe. selected the option to use an existing ISO on the local hard drive. Browsed and gave the location of the ISO file. This was the FC9 DVD iso file.
    (3) Gave the target as USB flashdrive. Created the bootable USB using UnetBootin.
    (4) Booted teh system using the flash drive I created.

    However after booting, it asked me for the location ISO image. I selected hard drive, then selected /dev/sdb1 (for my flash drive) as the location. But it gave me a message saying that installer image was not found on the location. So there I was back to square 1. So here is what I did with the above USB bootable flash drive.

    (5) Removed the USB drive and booted windows again.
    (6) Again manually copied the DVD iso file to a folder (which i manually created) under the usb drive.
    (7) Again booted using the usb flash drive.
    (8 ) when it asked me for the location of the ISO image, I first selected hard drive, then selected /dev/sdb1 (for my flash drive), then gave the folder name under which I had copied the ISO.

    This time it was success ..!! The installation process started and I was successfully able to install Fedora 9.

    Thanks to everybody who helped me to accomplish this.

    I should have told you to forget about a thumb drive... just do the Unetbootin from a regular boot sesson. But I'm glad to hear you got it going! And just to get you going with some basics, check out this page. Plenty of info on Flash and Java, as well as media players!

    Hope you continue to enjoy Linux!
