Hi! I'm trying to burn white box linux to cds. I've tried 3 different burners, all in windows xp. I've used click n' burn pro, burn4free, and a demo model of nero 6. They've all burned the copies, but they are not readable in windows. I can go to linux, and they're all readable. I want to dual boot windows and the white box linux. Is there a way to burn the files I downloaded to disk so I can use them to install from windows? I've read the tutorial at linuxiso.org, but nero 6 doesn't have burn image under file, but under recorders (if that makes any diference), and the settings seem to be ok for iso, but as stated earlier, windows can't read any of the disks.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
if the burning software on your windows box is not writing thew ISOs to disk properly than i highly suggest you download the Cheetah CDBurner. its a demo but will work for some time and thats what i used when i switched from Winblows to Linux and it worked great.
Thanks for the response. There is an autorun file on the disk 1, but it didn't autorun when I put the disk in the drive in my redhat 9. Or it may have since I received a message asking if I wanted to run automount. I'm new to this, so I'm not surre if that was part of the install sequence, since I installed redhat from windows. Those disks were from a redhat distribution---not downloaded. If I use these disks to install white box linux, how would I setup the drive I'm using? F-disk in dos, set a partitio, but don't format the drive in fat32? Or just change the boot order to boot from the cd, and it'll take me into the install, and allow me to install the server on a different partition while retaining the windows os on the existing partition? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
