Hello I'm very much interested in downloading & installing Fedora Linux to my laptop, however, I have a question.

The fedora website asks me only to download iso's and write it in a CD/DVD. However i don't want to do waste a CD/DVD. Is there any other way in which i can install fedora?

Because you need to be at a lower level than an operating system to install another operating system. I don't believe it's possible for an operating system to be installed from within another OS, as that would involve changing BIOS boot order among other things.

If you lack a CD/DVD drive, then the easiest thing to do would be to create a bootable USB drive. You can make this from the ISO files, as described here.

Small vocubularies for small minds. Forget the child who used swear words. He or she will always be with small vocabularies.

Why does he think that only Fedora allows creation of USB bootable drives? Many other distributions follow suite.
