If you are buring ISOs then...burn the ISO and don't worry about making anything bootable. The ISO determines if it's bootable or not.

BTW, you should not end up with one big file with the *.ISO extension. If you do then you didn't burn the image correctly.

The ISO is like a ZIP file (sorta) and when you burn it you should end up with the extracted image...in other words...many files on the CD.

If you're using Nero....Click File>>>Burn Image. Then go pick your ISO image and Nero will take care of the rest.

I just finished the install went very smooth

have both windows and Red Hat on same Hard drive

was a lot easer than i expected after that CD confusion I'm very happy Right now


just get to get my verizon on-line account up and running with it. on Win XP now getting that info


1 peace of advice have a section of your hard drive un partitioned. I guess that fact made duel OS install very easy for me

my first impressions of the GUI are good to! I'm off to start learning Ty again for the help
