i am really interested in trying linux, fed up with microsoft. the problem i'm having is that everytime i download a version, i can't put it on a cd. is there anyplace i can download what i need thats not in an image? or is there a way i can burn an image to a cd that i'm not aware of? i currently use windows xp, i'm trying to load it onto a sony vaio. the only cd burning software i have is what came on the laptop(media player). i have roxio cd creator platinum, but it has compatiblity issues with xp. basically, what i am looking for is all of the files that go onto a cd in a folder labeled 'cd 1' that i can copy onto a cd. any help is greatly appreciated. thanx.
you can probably find some floppy images out there, the trouble is that even with
some sort of internet install available to some builds, you still need to get the core
booted on your system, and go from there.
thanx for the patch for the roxio, will this allow me to burn a cd from an image? another thing...can i get the core on a floppy to boot from and go to an internet install to get the rest of the os? i hate to ask questions that have probably been asked before, but i can't find any specific info for the questions i have... if the patch works and lets me burn images, i'm all set. thanx.
you guys rock! i am a little down about losing my career for partaking in a little bud from time to time, but i'm gonna use my talents to get it legalized. what better way than to use the technology available? i really appreciate the kick start.....anyone know what my signature says in english?
