On the menu bar in k3b there is Tools>CD>Burn CD Image...

A Window will open. Select your options here, and then click Start

(k3b version 0.11.17)

You can also click on the iso in the Konqueror window and it should fetch K3B up and burn from there.

Check your K3b screen loads properly, as the other writer said you can also use the tool bar on K3b.
You can also select dvd or cd and then drag the iso down from the directory menu and then click on burn.

sir,this is working now but i had a big problem with system.
i think i lost my lilo. so i tried to boot up my mandrake linux from first cd.
i press F1 and then typed boot: rescur <enter>
on the screen the lines are,

loading alt0.......
loading alt0/all.rdz ......................................................................................
compressing linux ok booting kernal...............................

after that the system is rebooting again from first cd.
now i have no idea.
but the cd is in good condition.
should i change any BIOS settings?
i changed the cd for first boot disk but no use.
can i use other distro for rescue like redhat ,fedora etc.
i don't know what to do?
thanks for advance..

OK, I guess you have bigger problems now. You will need to edit your /etc/lilo.conf And then run /sbin/lilo

You can do this using any Live CD such as knoppix, or even a Slackware installation CD.

I didn't really understand your problem, but this info may help you:

lilo is a bootloader that loads linux and also gives you the option to load other operating systems that you may have installed on your disk (such as Windows, or even another linux).

A bootloader can be installed in many locations, such as a floppy, a CDROM etc. But most people install it in the Master Boot Record (MBR). This is a special location in the hard-disk that contains information about booting operating systems. (keeping it very simple)

The /etc/lilo.conf is a configuration file that contains information about the operating systems and which partitions they are installed in. A typical lilo.conf looks like this:

Code:
# LILO configuration file
# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hda
append="hdd=ide-scsi"
prompt
timeout = 50
# VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
vga=788
# End LILO global section
# DOS bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hda1
  label = windows
  table = /dev/hda
# DOS bootable partition config ends
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz-ide-2.4.26
  root = /dev/hda9
  label = Linux
  read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
Keep in mind that this lilo.conf file will not work unless it is intalled in a rescue disk, or in the MBR.

So, to load lilo into the MBR, you need to run /sbin/lilo

It is always a good idea to keep a rescue disk handy, as the MBR can be easily over-written by a virus, or during installation of another operating system such as windows.

Now, I have never used mandrake, so I dont know what rescue disk you were mentioning.

However you must keep in mind the following things:
1) You need to somehow load lilo into the MBR.
2) The lilo.conf file that you load should be checked that it contains proper information about all the operating systems on your disk.
3) If your lilo.conf file is improper then you won't be able to load the operating system (which apparently is happening now)

And finally, if you cant figure out what the HELL I'm talking about and you dont have any important data on the hard-disk, just format and reinstall everything

Has any one here wondered why he is posting this when in another thread he says he cant boot into mandrake?
