Making sure I did it right


Ok I just downloaded Ubuntu .iso and Suse .iso (5 CDs).

My DVD burning program can make bootable floppy disk but I don't have a floppy disk. Built this computer to what I needed. I didn't need or want a floppy disk. Also my program can Create ISO9660 Image File. When I would create that it makes the .img file. I've looked alllll over the web and from the sites where I downloaded my linux .iso files. It don't explan much well to me. So do I need to burn onto CD the .iso? .img? both? or I'm way wrong?

If that is way wrong then MagicISO program should do it for me? Didn't download it yet.

You have to burn the .iso, my friend. You don't need to do anything, just burn it. I don't know if this program can do it for you, but certainly there are some...seek out in download.com .

if it has the extension .rar, u better extract it.. if it has the extension .iso , just burn it..

usually it is .iso, so u need to just burn it to a CD or DVD

crap. lol It wouldn't let me at first then I restarted the burning program and I think now it's working. It was talking about According to the OS comatability stuff blah blah blah couldn't read the file.

I placed the ISO file right onto the CD then hit Record. it's now burning something.

Which program are you using. You should select a menu option to burn an .iso image. If you just dropped the .iso file into a window, you are burning it as a file instead of burning the image.

If you are using K3B, then look in the tools menu.

There should be a "Burn CD Image" option, which is what you need.

If not, get a free/trial CD burning prog and try again.
