Use Nero http://www.nero.com or EasyCD Creator http://www.roxio.com/

the lack of proper free utilities for windows does suck for things like cd burning/mounting. (and most things actually).

Before you spend the bucks on Nero check out CD Bruner XP Pro. It's a free cd burning software for windows. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that Nero and easy cd creator have but for most jobs it works great.

ok...

I know I am a newbie.


I burned 4 ISO images to disk ... as bootable disks.

When i start my computer with disk 1 in ..

I comes to a DR DOS Prompt. A:\>

I am not sure what to do next

I read this .. but I am still not clear... can someone please advise?


Boot From the DVD or CD to Run the Installation Program

The ISOs have an md5sum embedded in them. It is strongly recommended you verify the md5sum on any Fedora Core CDs or DVD you create using downloaded ISO images. This will ensure that the disk was burned correctly and prevent installation failures related to bad media. To test the checksum integrity of the DVD/CDs, boot off the DVD or first CD, and type the following command at the boot: prompt:
linux mediacheck

The checksum operation can be performed in any order.

To start the installation program, boot from the DVD, the first CD, or the boot CD made from the boot.iso image.


When I type linux media check I ger .. filename not recognized.

the CD is on drive E:


I am not sure what i am doing wrong here.

Thanks

Ok...

I am getting closer.
plus I am learning.

I got the disk to begin the install.

But Disk 1, 2 and 4 were bad.

I got a MD5 Summer for windows.

I understand how to generate the MD5 Sums.

When I got my ISOs I did not know about the MD5 Sums Issue.
I do not remember which FTP I got them from.
I am assuming that since that is the case the MD5summer program cannot verify if the ISOs are complete?

2nd. I am back on the net getting the ISO's and I got the MD5Sum txt file.

Is the proper prodecure then to generate the MD5 sums using the little windows program and then compare those to the MD5 txt file I got from the FTP?

Also... since disk3 checked out. Do I need to download the DISK 3 again from the new site? Or is a DISK3 a DISK 3 ?


Thanks for your help.

It is now 2:17 CST. and I am DETERMINED! .

I check the MDSUM .. and it checks out.

I burn the disk. - PROPERLY

I boot from disk 1 and from the install program of Fedora .. I test the media and the disk comes up FAIL.

I download from another site ... repeat... and get the same FAIL.
