Re: Live cd help
there are many possible problems here and you have not given enough information.
it is possible that the laptop simply doesnt have enough ram.
it is possible that the ISO image you downloaded was corrupted.
it is possible that the burn process had errors or corrupted the disk.
it is possible that you downloaded a version of fedora which is incompatible with his hardware i.e. his cpu is 32 bit and you downloaded a 64 bit version.
