Why do you want to make a bootable cdrom?

The only access I have to the Internet is some one else's PC running win 98. It has a HP CD burner on it. So I hope to down load Linux to build a boot cdrom.

What distro are you using? Don't they offer isos?

Yes the win box will do the job. Most distros have isos and that means that you can just download, burn in a burning program and you are ready to install.

Ok. Thank you. I was thinking there was some thing different about the boot track on the cd.
