Hi,

1 - When you burned 1st CD, did you make it bootable ?
2 - Did you set bios to boot your PC from cdrom drive ?

What program did you use to burn the cds?

Did you select that the file should be handled as a disk image or did you just burn the file to disc? You should be treating it as a disc image. If you tell us what program you use to burn, we can probably tell you how to burn a disc image in that program.

Regards,
Mark.

--edit--

Oh I see that you can download the image not as an .iso.. then I can't help... If it was me I would have downloaded the iso!

Looks like you didn't download the isos, you downloaded the contents.

Go to http://linuxiso.org/distro.php?distro=17 and grab the isos from their mirror sites. Then go to http://linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/verifyiso.html to learn how to make sure the download is good, then go to http://linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/howtoburn.html to lean how to burn said isos to disc.

You only need discs 1 and 2.

I think you need to use cd # 2 to boot up with. It's the one with the bootable live file system.

There should be an option in nero to burn from a disk image (at least there is in roxio). Try using that. Simply copying files from the image to the disk won't make the disk bootable.
