Description of problem: Im a virgin linux user and having difficulty installing 
Fedora 8.  Ive successfully downloaded the DVD ISO, checked the hash for errors 
(none), burned a DVD image (4x), and can get it to begin to boot, and it goes 
through the language, keyboard, and media location but after that I get a "The 
Fedora Core CD was not found"  
This was a problem in version 4 accoding to bugzilla #153014 
Its a COMPAQ 2.8  Ghz intel with a DVD drive and a CD drive.  It looks like it 
might be looking in the CD intead of the DVD?

The documentation http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Options says that you
can fix fix your issue by specifying a installation device by passing it as an
argument to the kernel on boot.

In simpler words you can type "linux method=hd://<dev>/<path>" when booting from
the cd (and prompted for user input).

The <dev>/<path> part will most likely be /dev/sr<number> (so the option would
look like method=hd:///dev/sr1). You are most likely trying to access /dev/sr0
by default and require /dev/sr1. The sr<num> means a scsi read-only device (all
ide devices are now using scsi emulation) and the number is the order (starting
at 0) of the device reported to the kernel from the bios.

Hope this resolves you issue.

Are you seeing any error messages on tty3 or tty4?  You can switch over there by
pressing alt-f3 and alt-f4.
