I downloaded Kubuntu...now what?


I just downloaded Kubuntu 7.04 (Feisty) from http://www.kubuntu.org
my question is should I burn the downloaded file on a CD? or is there anyway to unzip it and then burn it all on a cd?

thanks

If you downloaded the iso file you use any CD creator program to make a bootable CD and go from there.

Just make sure you "Create CD from Image", don't just try to burn a data CD with the *.iso file.

You can unpack the iso with WinRAR(if you're runing windows)
But I can not say fo certain it will then be completly ok, I allways burned as Image.

It won't be the same. You damage the boot instructions.
