Help installing Xandros


I got the image for xandos from Limewire burned it with nero and now not sure what to do. Is there another CD besides the Applications Package?

This is from the readme...

Version: Xandros Desktop OS 3.0.1 Deluxe Applications Disc
Build Info: 2005-02-09 16:07
Part: DDX301ENCD2FE09
Sku: DSKD301NAEN


Inside the Folder....

DISTS\XANDROS3.0 there are three sub folders.

Contrib
Main
Non Free

Applications Package Info:

Installing from the Applications Disc
The Applications Disc contains additional software that you can install on your computer. Most of the applications are also included in Xandros Networks, so you have a choice of installation method (CD or Internet).

To view and install packages from the Applications Disc

Insert the Xandros Applications Disc in a CD-ROM drive. When the Xandros File Manager window opens, close it.
Click Launch > Xandros Networks. You do not need an Internet connection.
Click Edit > Set Application Sources.
Note which boxes are enabled so that you can restore these later. The default application source is the Xandros distribution site.
Enable the CD-ROM drive 1 or CD-ROM drive 2 check box, depending on the drive in which you inserted the Applications Disc.
Disable all other check boxes (to view only the packages on the Applications Disc).
Click OK and provide the Administrator password if prompted. The applications database is compiled from the Applications Disc.
Click New Applications, clicking on the + to expand the list. View or select the packages for installation by enabling the check boxes. You can select multiple packages. If you perform a search for an application and do not find it, try clicking Expert in the left pane. You can also change the mode of the window by clicking Settings > Expert View.
Install a single package by clicking Install or multiple packages by clicking File > Install Selected Applications, then click OK to install. Wait while the packages are being installed, respond to any prompts, then Close the installation window when done.
Click Edit > Set Application Sources and reset the source (for example, enable the Xandros distribution site check box).
Applications installed from the disc normally appear in the appropriate area of the Launch menu.

It's my guess that what you downloaded is not the operating system itself.
