Grizzle like that and you're unlikely to get much help.  It's moderately
easy to install without having to install from a collection of discs, if
you have hard drive space to spare during the install.

After reading your message, I'm not that inclined to help beyond
pointing out the basics of one simple method:

1. Download and burn the rescue disc ISO.
2. Download the install DVD ISO to a hard drive partition with plenty of
space, and leave it there.  If you use systems without multiple
partitions, or without any large enough, then you can use a main
partition, just remove the prior files before trying to install (*).
3. Boot the rescue disc, choose install from hard drive, pick the hard
drive partition with the DVD ISO on it, make sure that partition isn't
reformatted during the install process (it shouldn't let you, it should
protest if you try, but I wouldn't depend on something like that).


* Presuming something like one partition for / and most sub-directories.
One could boot the rescue disc, and switch over to another console and
"rm -rfd" everything but the location where you've saved the ISO file.
It's probably a good idea to rename /home/ if you want to keep it.  Let
the new install create a new home, then copy over older bits after the
install.  Not everything in /home works well between different releases.
Then you'd switch back to the install console, and carry on using the
installer.


There's a plethora of websites describing different methods of
installing without doing it from multiple discs.  Just find one that
details a method you can follow.
