I suppose there are multiple ways to do this, but I would consider downloading 
the Fedora Live (or Fedora KDE Live) iso image which fits on a good old 700MB 
cd. Use the pen drive to transfer it to any computer which can burn cds (I 
can't find one that still cannot do this...). Burn the image, then take it to 
your computer and install.

Or you might install from the pen drive itself, but that is more complicated.

This is just an outline of the step-by-step instructions. I assume you are 
capable of handling the details.

1) download Fedora 9 Live iso image
2) copy the .iso file to the pen drive
3) go to the nearest shop and buy an empty cd (or rather two, for safety)
4) go to the nearest internet caffe and burn the image from the pen drive to 
the cd.
5) there is a catch in step 4, don't burn the .iso file to the cd, but rather 
burn *its content* to the cd. Use the second cd if you already did this 
wrong, have the local admin help you if you don't know what you are doing
6) take the cd to your computer and boot it using the cd. When the install 
starts, be sure to perform the "check media" step before continuing.
7) Educate yourself about Fedora, Linux, computers in general. It will prove 
useful later in life.

HTH, :-)
