I'm trying to install Fedora so that I can run Amahi Home Server, my system wont boot from a DVD and I'm now sure how to install using CDs or USB.

If you boot up the installable LiveCD (top 'download now' button) there will be a desktop icon 'Install to hard disk' - double click it and the graphical installer will start.

Thanks! I'll try it, one question, when in the installation process, am I able to add any additional software repositories? I need to be able to because the Amahi installation requires it (I think). – James T Feb 17 '10 at 14:37
I think the LiveCD install just copies the CD to the hard drive in more or less a single step - you would have to customise the repositories after booting into it. – robertc Feb 17 '10 at 15:25
Ok thanks so much! – James T Feb 17 '10 at 15:26
The LiveCD installer wont run, I hit "Install to hard drive" and nothing happens, could this happen because there isn't enough memory? There is 389 MB of memory on the system. – James T Feb 17 '10 at 15:46
OK, it may be worth trying the net installer then: go to the 'All downloads page' and try the Network Install CD. This will download all the packages from the repos so you need an active net connection during the install. Alternatively, you could download the 6 CD install set. – robertc Feb 17 '10 at 18:50

You can install from the Live-CD available at
