Hi, I've downloaded the .iso file for Fedora workstation. The docs say to use the media writer to create the install DVD. When I attempt to download the media writer... Norton says it's dangerous and deletes it ASAP. I tried writing the iso file with other tools (cdrtools), but the install fails every time. What's a body to do?

If media writer isnt installing then you can try Unetbootin ( If you are using windows currently)

Media Writer is a Linux software. If you are using Windows, then you should follow these instructions:
