Here is one source for Fedora 8 live CD's:


You get your choice of KDE or Gnome. Other architectures (x86-64, ppc) are 
also available. Expect a lot of upgrading, followed by downloading all of the 
stuff that they couldn't fit on a CD. FWIW, I used the KDE CD to install this 
installation of F8, and it has turned out to be stronger than houses for me.

There are other ways of skinning the cat, but I've never tried them.
