.bz2 files


Decided to try out BSD without having to do much. I downloaded a live CD of NetBSD but it came in a .bz2 file, and Nero doesn't like that. Is there a program where I can convert it into a .iso file? Or just a program that can burn .bz2 files? Thanks.

If you have access to a linux system, you can use bunzip2 to unpack it.

So "bunzip2" atoumatically converts it? I'll boot into Slack and check it out then. Thanks.


EDIT: Don't have access to my Win drives. Ehh... I guess I'll just re-download it in Slack.

bzip2 is a compression mechanism, something like a more tightly packed gzip.
