I don't see where you are misunderstood. You asked whether the Live 
CD/DVD's are installable and the answer yes and has been from the Fedora 
7 release onwards. All the different variants and spins of Fedora have 
this capability.

You can either click on the desktop icon after booting into it or run 
liveinst for a text based installer in runlevel 3.
