Can you boot off other discs, like a Windows install disc? If you can, try burning the image again using a different program. I assume you can't, though, if floppys don't work either.

You probably need to change the disk order in your BIOS settings, so that it will boot the DVD drive before the hard drive. I don't know exactly where the setting is on your computer, but when you're computer first boots, see if a key like 'del' or 'F2' loads the settings page.

Also, on some newer computers, you have to press a special key to boot off anything but the hard drive. I have to press F12 quickly when my laptop first boots.

(and I'm pretty sure Fedora linux uses a kernel that is too large to fit on a floppy, so you probably won't find any floppy images for the installer)
