Does your cd hold 2 files - one bare.i and one which ends with .iso? If so, it won't boot.

Follow this link for info on burning cds with a variety of burning software.

Thanks, I didn't know that, I'll try that too. And I just realized I posted in the wrong section, I didn't know there was a sub-sub forum for distributions.

If you don't have full cd burning software (like, for example, a purchased copy of Nero), go to the Nero website - last time I was there the demo download will let you burn cds.

I think that the inbuilt WinXP burning ability will only give you limited abilities - and I don't think creating a cd from an iso is one of them.

Once you've burned your disks with the Nero demo, you can uninstall it.

WinXP can't burn ISO images. You'll have to use Nero, EasyCD, or similar. There is a WinXP ISO Recorder Power Toy that will allow you to right click on an ISO and burn it directly to the disk. And just to clarify, if you have slackware-9.1-install-d1.iso then you do not need bare.i. Just get rid of it.

It'll work. just make sure you use Nero (or nero express) and select burning from ISO as the option, not as a data disc... and point to the ISO file you DLed.

um...

It's working, but I'm no pro at setting up partitions for linux, if someone could give me a real brief tutorial or link to page, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

All you really need is 2 partitions - / and /swap. Normally /swap is 2 times your memory (eg, 2x64mb is 128mb), but if you have 256mb or more, just create it to the same size as your physical memory. / can be the remainder.

A good idea is to create a third for /home. This way if something goes wrong and you have to reinstall everything, then at least your personal data is safe.

I usually just create a new partition of free space and let the Linux partitioning programs deal with it.
