Installation of MANDRIVA LINUX ONE 2009


Hi everybody

I have recently downloaded a free version of Mandriva Linux One 2009 to install on an HP Proliant.

The name of the downloaded file is

" mandriva-linux-one-2009-beta-KDE4-int-cdrom-i586"

and its type is ISO.

I have never dealt with this sort of files and do not know how to proceed with the installation. To install linux I have always used a set of CD's.

Could anyone let me know how to install this software?

To save you time, let me just add that I tried two options both of which failed.
1- I just inserted a cd with the above file on it as is and let the system boot from it but nothing happened, the system did not recognize it .
2- I uncompressed the file using WINRAR (a windows application) and got a set of files and directories such as " boot" and so on. I copied everything on a cd and inserted it and let the system boot but again nothing, absolutely nothing happened!

I will be very thankful to anyone who could let me know how to proceed.
With best regards,
Saadi

Here is the link to Mandriva download page, at the bottom left of the page under "Download" is a link called "Writing an ISO image". If you need help to read what comes up when you click on it, give us a shout.
