Burning a Bootable disk?


Hello.
This should be a pretty simple question to answer...
I just downloaded FC-5-i386 iso and i'm wondering how to put it on a disk that i can use to install linux on my other computer.
I'm currently running fc2 on my computer and think its time for an upgrade =]
thanks in advance

Use google to search for a free iso burner and use that to burn it to a cd. That is what I have done but I can't remember what the name of the burner is.

Thanks for the reply.
It seems to be working very good.
I got Active ISO Burner.
Couldn't be any more simple than that.
I appreciate it =]

If you want to try another .iso burner:

http://www.imgburn.com

Don't know about anybody else, but I've had one or two failures using CD-RWs. I stick to CD-Rs now.
