I need help with linspire

I just downloaded the linspire install .iso file because windows is getting on my nerves, but i need to know exactly how to make these .iso files work because i honestly have no idea, and i also need to know if linspire is compatible with windows software because I'd hate to install it just to have to reformat yet again. Thanks for the help!

The distro with the most compatability in my mind is Xandros (if you pay for it). IT is just as easy as Linspire but more Stable and it isn't as difficult to install third party software. But, Linspire includes tons of good software that is open source. Also, to all the people bashing Linspire, if you don't like it, don't use it, get a life, and quit wasting your time making fun of it when you are in forums that have Linspire users who need help, not users who need your opinion. (Sorry, it bugs me when people get so wrapped up in this whole Linspire thing). Your best bet is to just look at the 2 websites and compare the products.

Also, Xandros has a free download through BitTorrent if you wanna try their open circulation edition, you can always just edit your sources.list file to download from Debian.

Source Code has always been available

They just don't force you to download it on a second CD if you aren't going to use it.

ascarletrequiem...You basically go and get a CD Burning Prog that can burn ISO's (Nero is a good one)...Burn Linspire onto your disk, and press F12 while your system is booting (before it says Windows XP) and press enter on Boot from CD or something similar to that with the CD that you burned in your hard drive.....I am 12 and new to Linux, but I am loving it! I may tryout WinLinux soon...
