How would I go about installing Fedora Core 2 onto an older pc that does not boot from a CD? Is there a file in the Install CD that I could execute manually to start the install of it?

You can always boot installation from ISOz (on a hard drive). I do this on my laptop because I have no CD-ROM drive in it. What you need is loadlin and kernel+initrd.img from first CD of Fedora installation (I don't remember exactly where I found it - if you need details on that mail me - I'll check it). As far as I remember FC1 had this 'autoboot' folder on a first CD. You just enter it under DOS and type autoboot.bat to run installation. Then you point to a partition containing (in its root directory) FC ISOz and that's it.
