The ISO file is just a CD image... like a copy of a CD in file format. That's what you need to open with your burning software and burn. It should bring up your file structure for your CD & everything then...

ya it worked up untill it started the boot up. for some reason i just locks up and quits on me. i tried both ubuntu and xubuntu. i really dont want Xp on the laptop.. Whats another good distro that is not heavy on PC? and that has 1 disk ISO.

Ubuntu is probably the best distro for that kind of thing, imo... what are you using to burn CD's?

Infra recorder for the Xubuntu. the ubuntu was the disk from them that came in the mail

Interesting.. if its both disks, I'm wondering what the error is that's causing it to freeze up again; it's likely you'll get the same error with different distros (but I could be wrong...)

Dan you seem to know lots about this if i was to go with this: http://redhat.download.fedoraproject.or ... /i386/iso/ (http://redhat.download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/core/6/i386/iso/)
Would i have to download all the disks or just the first?
im low on CD Roms lol

Not familiar with Red Hat, truthfully. I've done all my messing around with Ubuntu. I'd guess it'd just be the first one, but don't take my word on that lol

il give it shot lol

How much of Fedora Core you need to download depends on how much you want to install. When I did my install of Fedora Core 5, I only needed the first disk and part of the second, but I also selected options like OpenOffice and a few other programs. The other disks wound up containing stuff I didn't feel I needed. If you're looking for a minimum installation, I'd say you, like me, would probably only need the first disk; you might need the second disk.
