Here are some instructions for Roxio. If you want to use a different program just type in burn iso (nameofprog) at google and you should find some answers. Also, try Knoppix and you will know before you try installing Linux whether it will work or not. Or, if the distro you are considering has their own live cd, such as Mandrake, you could use theirs too.

I tried to follow the directions that the Web site gave me. However perhaps the version of Roxio( I hate Roxio) we have on campus is different because I had find a different way. The iso file downloaded and then I opened Roxio. To select the the file I went from the file menu and found the iso. I made sure it was being burned as a iso.

Some things I was not sure about. The file Roxio is going to burn for you...you have the option to burn it as a bootable disk. Ok...if it is a .iso image is it unnessesary to choose this?

That could be tough because I use Campus Lab pc to download and burn. I can not install a third part tool to check md5

It's really very easy. All the usual settings are immaterial. That's all included in the iso itself. The secret is simply to make sure you are burning it as an *image*. Forget the normal burning procedure and instead look through the program menus until you find a command that says something like "burn image", "burn disk image", "create cd from image" or something similar. No matter what burning software you use, it should be there somewhere. When you choose this command is should let you browse to your .iso file. Select it, and burn it. No need to do anything else.

You can easily test it simply by putting the disk back into the drive and looking at it in Explorer. If you see a bunch of files and folders, you did it right. If all you see is the .iso image, you did it wrong...try again.
