I am in a Network operating system class and I have been given a disc for fedora 13 to install using VMware, the disc reads fine on other computers, but i got a new computer running windows 8 that the disc comes up as being corrupted, i've even tried to use a different disk still does not work. I figured it was a compatibility issue with windows 8 and fedora 13 but being that im installing in on vmware it should not be an issue. Can anyone help, or does anyone have a solution to this?

Instead of using the physical disk you could use an ISO image to install Fedora on VMware. There is an option to use the ISO image in the CD/DVD section of the VM settings.

Fedora 13 64-bit ISO's can be found here:

Fedora 13 32-bit ISO's can be found here:

If at all possible, please use a newer release of Fedora. Fedora 13 is way to old. You will not receive any updates or new software for Fedora 13.
