Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

On what system would you like to burn it? Using Windows, Linux, ...? If Linux which desktop environment are you using? Gnome, KDE, ...

Kind regards,

Eric

Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

You can also put it on a USB stick with Unetbootin - if the computer boots from USB. Unetbootin is available in Linux and Windows flavours.

If it's for Windows, try ImgBurn:

Welcome to LQ! 3 years before you queried?

You should verify the downloaded image!

The 'md5sum' or 'hash' is very important to learn to use and too regularly get in the habit of utilizing it. You can get a sum checker for M$ if need be; 'md5sum.exe'.

For GNU/Linux the 'man md5sum' will get you all the information to perform the check. You can get the 'man command from the 'cli' at anytime.

If you downloaded the CD/DVD iso then be sure to check the md5sum for the original ISO. From the cli;

Code:
~#cd /downloadisolocation      #cdromiso.iso cdromiso.md5 

~#md5sum -c cdromiso.md5       #substitute the correct name to check
If the iso md5 is ok then you should try 'CdromMd5sumsAfterBurning''.

This way you will know if the burn was OK!

This will check the download ISO with the known md5sum that you also get with the ISO. You should do the check for any download that you might perform, even a LiveCD. Plus burn the image. Sometimes you may need to lower the burn rate to get a valid burn.

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

@ ERICtra,
Am on windows vista and unfortunately the nero i have does not offer much help.
I read that if i do it wrong i could end up with another unworkable image on the CD.

Everyone else, thanks for the help.

Hello,

I'm happy to see you got it working and that you were able to install your Simply Mepis. Have fun with Linux.

If you consider your problem/question solved then please mark it as such using the thread tools.

Kind regards,

Eric
