ISO problems with Mandrake.


I'm sort of new to this. I downloaded the ISOs but whenever I try to burn them to a CD as an image it gives me an error saying that the file is too large to burn. I'm using 700 mb CDs, so is there a specific way I should be burning these or am I just missing something obvious?

What application are you using to burn the CD?

I looked over that and realized that I didn't have "finalize" checked, but I'm still getting the same error. Is there anything else I could do?

Well, what size is the ISO image? Also, where did you download it from? I've been using Mandrake for a while now, and I've never had a problem with their ISO image. At least not while burning it to a CD...

You might have a corrupt download. As a very last resort (depending on how much time you have), download it again.

I downloaded it from the mandrakelinux.com site. I also checked the md5's and all of those were right.
