I decided to install for my first Linux " Linux XP. It really looked a cool setup. But when I tried to burn the iso it was to large at 4.47 to burn. Could anyone give me advice on this little problem, please.
I tried Imageburn and this message came up. Not enough room on disk. Disc size 2.298,496= 4489. To burn Linux Xp = 2348, 103 sectors = 4586. So, how on earth am I supposed to burn this to a disc. Just remember I am a Noob and some things are not easy to understand. Laugh, and That is before I even get to try linux. Ah well, any advice would be appreciatted.
Brill Guys, you have opened my eyes here. I did not realise that Linux xp was only a 30 day limit, so bye bye that one. I will give Fedora a go or Unbuntu.
Thank you again, for your help.
i would vote up fedora. they created a straightforward live-usb creator (i didnt even know they still made computers with cd-rom drives). ubuntu and others are able to boot from a usb but thru a 3rd-party tool (unetbootn).
