Re: how to burn fedora 3 on cd's



Hi

If you have a cd burner and are using a i386 machine aka not a mac:
1. Pick a mirror off of this list, any one of them should work:
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html

There are 2 main methods to get the files: 1. use a web browser (i.e.
Firefox) 2. use wget(recommended)

Getting the files using a webbrowser:
Click on the mirror you choose and navigate to: 3->i386->iso
NOTE: Not all mirrors have the iso directory, ists trial an error on
who has it and who doesn't

Download:
FC3-i386-disc1.iso
FC3-i386-disc2.iso
FC3-i386-disc3.iso
FC3-i386-disc4.iso

Those will take awhile and I DON'T recommend using a webbrowser to
download them. I've had Firefox stall a few times when downloading
them.

Getting the files using wget:
Find a mirror and run these commands:
wget -t=0 -retry-connrefused <mirror>3/i386/iso/FC3-i386-disc1.iso
wget -t=0 -retry-connrefused <mirror>3/i386/iso/FC3-i386-disc2.iso
wget -t=0 -retry-connrefused <mirror>3/i386/iso/FC3-i386-disc3.iso
wget -t=0 -retry-connrefused <mirror>3/i386/iso/FC3-i386-disc4.iso

NOTE: make sure the mirror you're using has the iso directory, most do
but not all

Ex: 
wget ftp://mirror.newnanutilities.org/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/iso/FC3-i386-disc1.iso

These commands can be combined by putting && between them

After you get the files:
run the command: k3b
If it is the first time you have run it you might need to tell it how
fast your burner is.

For each file you downloaded:
Goto Tools->CD->Burn CD Image...

In the top left corner of the window that poped up click the "open
folder" button and select the image file and hit OK.

Put a blank cd into the burner and Label it "Fedora Core 3: D?/4"
replace the ? with whatever disk number it is.

Then click Start.

When all files are burned boot your computer using the first the CD.
