This is guide with screenshots, howto install Fedora 15 Lovelock using Live CD or Live USB. Fedora 15 Installation can be done also with using Fedora NetInstall (Net Install) with gPXE and BFO (boot.fedoraproject.org).

Note this installation is done on Gnome 3 fallback mode and Gnome shell looks little different. Here is also some Gnome 3 with Shell screenshots.

Download Fedora 15 here.

Select your favorite Live CD (Gnome, KDE, LXDE, XFCE) and architecture i686 or x86_64. On this guide I use Fedora 15 Gnome Live CD and 64-bit version.

1.2 Burn Fedora 15 Image to CD or Create Live USB and Boot Computer Using Fedora 15 Installation Media

Remember to check Fedora 15 image MD5 sum and then burn image to CD with your favorite CD burner or create LiveUSB example with liveusb-creator. And boot computer using Fedora 15 Installation Media.
