Iso image will not boot


Hi folks
I have a PC 1.7ghz 512 ram running Win Xp on one hdd and Red Hat 9 on 2nd hdd. I am using Grub as bootloader.
Everything running fine
I downloaded Slack 9 iso image from the internet onto my Apple Imac and burned image to CD-RW using Toast Titanium using ISO9660
My windows and Linux systems recognize cd but will not boot from it into slack. It will bring up pc into grub and show just windows and redhat.
Please help? I can find no help in online docs with my specific problem.
Thanks very much

Well, did you actually burn the image to the disc or did you only copy over the ISO? The latter scenario results in a disc that can't be used to boot or install.

I had the same problem with booting from installation CD. I read somewhere, that it is a bug in 9.0 which prevents install CD from booting on some machines. It was advised to use 8.1 components to burn bootable CD. But the easiest way is to prepare and use boot floppy and start installation from there. It is described well in Slack installation instruction.
