how to create bootable cd


hi ,

Ive just downloaded the fedora c2 installer and the extension name is *.iso file and use iso commander (in windows) to decompress the file and burn it using nero with no problem. But when i boot the cd to install the fedora the fedora cd1 is not bootable. How can i make the cd1 to be bootable?How can i make the cd1 to be bootable?

You have to burn it as ISO. If you havent done so it might not be bootable. You might have made a data cd from the ISO file.

Tux,

Edit: you dont have decompress the ISO file...just burn it as ISO in Nero

There is no need to decompress the iso, simply choose to burn an image file to disk from nero. There are instructions here.

You know that to boot a CD on most systems you will have to enter the boot settings and choose CD right.....

Otherwise, most CD burning programs have an option to burn isos to disc.
