I feel like a total n00b asking this, but then again I am so I'll ask anyway.
I downloaded the Gentoo LiveCD file, I want to burn it into a DVD... there's a whole bunch of files and I at first assumed I just had to copy the contents of the file I downloaded (install-amd64-minimal-2006.1) onto a DVD and voila, it'll boot and I can begin installing... but there's an option on the burner software titled "make a disc bootable", so I select that, then it gives me all these choices I don't know about
Select Emulation Type
-no emulation NT/2000/XP
Why the software talks about Floppies I've no idea... It also asks me to select an ISO level
-Level 1 (8+3)
-Level 2 (31)
-ISO 9660::1999 (unrestricted)
what any of that's about, again, I've absolutely no idea. I'd thought an ISO was an ISO, end of. But apparently not.
Then there are a couple of other options, but the relevance of any of them to burning a bootable linux dvd is questionable... if anyone can shed some light on the two groups of options quoted above I would be grateful enough. Maybe I should just burn the contents of install-amd64-minimal-2006.1 on the DVD and not worry about all these other settings but I tried it already and it didn't seem to work and I don't want yet another iridescent coaster.
By the way I got a AMD Duron chip, have I chosen the correct iso? (amd64-minimal-2006.1)
