Booting Fedora

Ok I have downloaded Fedora from the Official Fedora website, I extracted the ISO images using winRAR and then burned them to CD's using Nero.
But I can't get the CD's to boot, my BIOS (Pheonix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG) doesn't give me the option to select a media to boot from, but as it boots it checks my 2 drives (DVD-ROM and DVD R/RW). I know it works because the recovery disk that came with my PC boots fine and I can also use floppy disks to boot with.

My question is, is there a specific type of software I need to use to burn bootable CD's from ISO Images?

Or is there some sort of configuration I can do?

Or can I install Fedora from Windows?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Daniel.

You most likely burned the iso wrong. You shouldn't have extracted anything. You open Nero, and chose burn a disk image, then go from there.
