how to burn .iso.asc????


I have burned .iso files lots of times but when I downloaded the .iso for the Slackware distro I got .iso.asc files and I can't figure out how to change them to .iso files that I can then burn. Anyone know how to help me?

iso.asc are signature files, i believe. You need the iso file

But I downloaded these files using the torrent from the Slackware site. It seems strange that what I needed wouldn't be there.

I should mention that I also got folders for each of the disks that have around 650MB of data in each of them.

Do I maybe just burn these files to disk?

hmmm, there should be iso.asc and iso files.
slackware-<version>-install-d1... ............. Sep 25 2003 00:00 655589376
slackware-<version>-install-d1... ............. Sep 25 2003 00:00 189

the first file is the iso, the second would be the iso.asc

I am just going to delete what I've got and download the files again. Maybe something got messed up with the torrent. If that doesn't do it for me I will try http to download. Thanks for your help.

ok, but as you can see the iso is 655 megs or so. You said you have a 655 meg file. What is it? cd to that dir and type

ls

Why download them again if you already have them?

asc is integrity file verification

not sure if it'll help, but here is my two cents...

Two links that may prove helpful:

Slackware Torrents

README.1st

Quote from README.1st:
---------------------------------------
If you're reading this on ftp.slackware.com, you will find that the
ISO images are not here. This is because we simply don't have the
bandwidth at ftp.slackware.com to provide ISO images.
ISO downloads take a long time, and block people from retrieving
small updates.

If you're looking to download the ISO, consider using BitTorrent.
If there are active torrents available, information may be found on
on http://slackware.com. BitTorrent is available as a package for
Slackware in the /extra directory.

Mirror sites may also have the ISO images up for FTP.

Use the .asc files here to verify your ISO images are authentic.

------------------------------------------

Also If you're new to torrents, checkout:

Bittorrent.com
