Volume in drive A is DOS-BOOT
Directory of A:\
Command

WWBMV
Readme
Autobo7
DConfig

I tried playing the cd like this

[DR-DOS]A:\>dir i:\

Volume in drive I is Kubuntu Des

The disk may not be burned as an ISO

First see if your computer is set to boot to CD ROM first.
Next try going back and burning the disk as an ISO I'm not sure of the settings you need for Nero...

Live CDs are an automagic process...it should start loading up the OS as soon as your computer clears POST.

I hope this helps,
Mohtech

yes you did, because when you look at the files on the cd there should be a bunch of files not one .iso file

Try burning it as an image NOT data.
I made that mistake a thousand times before getting it right.

Never used infarecorder, but I've used Deepburner before, and its also very easy...

No matter what software you use, pay attention to burn speed. While it might benice to burn that 700+mb file in 10sec, its asking for errors. I used to always have problems burning boot disks before someone told me this nugget of info. Now I always burn my boot disks around 2x, takes a little longer, but never a problem.
