Trying to burn extra large .iso file!


Yes Suse does offer DVD .iso files from there FTP site for free. A small investment of your time will reveal this. I dont understand all of the controversy from the previous thread. That being said, I have a .iso file that is about 8 gigs that contains both 64 bit and 32 bit data. How could I go about burning this disk? I am sorry but I used a torrent to download this file, mainly because FTP is unreliable because if your internet connection hiccups you lose all your data. (please tell me if there is a download manager that I can use that will store data to a temp file to access it again). I used a program to investigate the contents of the disk. There is a section completely devoted to the 64 bit technology. Could I extract the .iso, remove the uneccesary files, remake the .iso and burn it? I just cant burnt an 8 gig disk! Is there a program that will let me burn the data DVD into two sets? Please help as you can imagine that I have spent quite a bit of time to let my computer download this 8 gig torrent and I dont want to have to start over!

I've tried deleting the x86_64 directory, but it doesn't get it small enough to burn on a single layer DVD. However, when I deleted more things(x86 RPM's that I don't need), I have an ISOLINUX error while booting from the DVD.(I used Ultra ISO on Windows to remove the directories, this might matter).

I did that too

I tried that too but it wont boot from the disk. I think the disk checks its validity before it continues. I also used Ultra ISO to extract the .iso remove the unecessary files and remake the .iso. Each disk i have made has failed to load. I am currently downloading the 32 bit DVD although it has less seeds and is DLIng slower not to mention I just wasted 5 days downloading 8 gigs..,. GReat

Surely you people need "dual-layer" dvd writers? If not, why bother? Heh...
