How to use K3b to burn an install DVD iso?
I'm about to burn Mandrake DVD install ISO with K3b to take the distro for a test drive. I have never burned with this software. I usually download an ISO in Linux placing it on a vfat partition. I then boot XP and use Roxio to burn . In Roxio I simply right click the ISO and Roxio takes it from there.
Well I can't do that this time because vfat doesn't support files over 2GIG and Mandrake's DVD is slightly more than 2GIG. I didn't realize the ISO was actually more than 2GIG and downloaded in Linux placing on an ext3 partition. The only way out now is to burn in Linux.
I remember a while back trying to burn a Linux installation ISO in Linux. It burned the whole ISO, not making a bootable installation disc. In other words, it just copied the ISO. It didn't break it down.
Will K3b do the same thing? How do I get it to create an install disc and not simply copy the ISO?
Or is the a better burner I should be using?
Hmmm...how about burning and creating install disc using the command line? Is that possible? What are the commands?
