Those are definitely the wrong options. Those are options for the CD's file system, when burning a collection of files to a CD. If there's an option as to whether to make the CD bootable, then you are definitely IN THE WRONG PLACE. Those windows you took screenshots of are for making a data CD of files, not for burning an .iso image.

You should be looking for an option in an upper level menu, like maybe the File menu, or maybe the Disc menu. There should NOT be an option whether to make the disc bootable. The boot flag is part of the .iso image. If you have an option whether to make the disc bootable, then that means you're burning the .iso file as a regular file, not as a full disc image.

From the screenshots it appears that you're trying to make a DOS boot disk. That's not what you want to do. The only Windows program I'm really familiar with is Nero. There is a Nero free trial version available at their website. It may work depending on what "trial" means.

ok I was able to install MEPIS Linux. I was able to use this program called rawrite2 that I found will searching through the CD I created. I was able to make three boot floppies from it. I restarted the computer with the floppy and the CD and it did a complete install. Thanks for all your inputs.

I've used that program, when you open the program click the top most option in the "new compilations" window. Then click "File" and select the menu option titled "Write disc from ISO file..." then click on the "..." button and find the ISO file you want to burn and then click the write disc button.

Ok so now I have Linux installed and it looks great. My next question is:

Getting on the internet. I am not sure if the MEPHIS installation took care of identifying my ethernet card and can communicate with it. Is this something I have to configure before I can get internet access? What are the general steps for getting this to work? Thanks everyone!

Have you even tried to connect to the internet? Open a web browser and see if it works.

At the boot options dialog, specify "CD ROM" as emulation type. Don't "enforce ISO level 1" as that might shorten file names. Underneath "writing speed" in the parent dialog, check "finalize disk".

Of course I have...it can't get onto any websites. I am not sure if the ethernet card was set up during installation or if that even matters. Do I need to install some type of driver for the card I am using?

I have also played around with the proxy settings, I set it to automatically detect proxy configuration and that didn't seem to do anything.

Can you post the output of "ifconfig -a" (you'll need to run this as root, or run "/sbin/ifconfig -a" as a normal user) please?

Ok I tried that I think.

In my start menu there is a selction for "Run Command". In there I typed in that ifconfig-a
and it returned the following message: "Could no run specified command".

Open a terminal and run it there (look in the menus for entries named "Terminal" or "Konsole" or something similar). There should also be a space between the command (ifconfig) and the option (-a).

If you have a mouse with a wheel, you can usually select text from a terminal (i.e. highlight it) and then paste it in a browser by clicking the wheel button. Why did you paste it in KWrite instead of here? :/

Anyway, a network card has been detected at least (eth0)? Are you connected to a router? If so, does it assign addresses via DHCP?
