Burning DVD from two iso files


I just downloaded the CentOS 5.1 DVD iso using wget. When it saved the file it actually saved it as two files:

CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.iso
and
CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.iso.1

Do I have to put these two files together somehow or is there a DVD burning program that will see the second file and just keep burning the complete image?

Thanks in advance.

probably means that you downloaded it twice. What are the file sizes of each? ("ls -lh" to get the file sizes).

Regardless, you only need one - probably the larger of the two, assuming one is larger. If they are both the same size, then it doesn't matter.

fyi: if you wget something more than once, it's appended with a new number each time, i.e. foo.jpg foo.jpg.1 foo.jpg.2 foo.jpg.3 etc. etc. etc.

Actually I downloaded just once, but it seems to have divided the file at a 2 GB limit of some sorts, which I do not understand since I am using the 64-bit version of CentOS.

The files sizes are:
2147486101 and 1697744491
Which add up to what the total iso should be (approx. 3.6G)

Try catting the files together, then check the md5sum against the published ones for the single DVD iso to check if it worked:
Code:
cat CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.iso CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.iso.1 > CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD_catted.iso
md5sum CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD_catted.iso
