I'm among those who don't have DVD burners. I don't know when I'll get one. If you can make a boot or rescue CD, though, I can install Fedora 8 the only way I ever installed FC6, from a DVD image in my home partition. If my hard drive's partition table gets screwed up, which has happened before, then I should be able to use GRML to set things right and then install Fedora. At least, that's my guess.
I note that a few years ago one of the much-touted benefits of Linux was that you could use it on older equipment. I take it that's one thing you can't say about Fedora or Red Hat any longer. It becomes less affordable that way. I know of course that this isn't your doing, and that you've got a problem to solve, but it deserves mention.
