How do I create a CD from iso images?


Ok i was wondering, the files i get from "download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/4/i386/iso/"

the disc1, disc2, etc, do i unzip those and then take all content inside and make an image for a bootable cd or do i just make an image of the zip file itself?

Sorry having trouble getting my stuff to become bootable. please help someone, a little more detail would be nice.

ISO files are entire images, not zip files (although they can be opened by winzip, winrar etc).

You want to take your CD burning program and tell it you want to burn an image file. It'll ask you which one, point it at the .iso file and it will burn away happily. The resulting disks will be executable.

Good luck.

Yeah. Note that you _need_ to tell the burning program you're burning an image, otherwise you'll end up with a CD with one file on it (the .iso) and it won't do anything. Instructions for doing this with nero can be found at http://www.weethet.nl/english/cdrw_usingnero_iso.php
