Burning the .iso to a cd

I downloaded all three of the i386 images and burned them to a cd. But when I tried to boot the computer from the cd, it didn't see that the cd was there. Is there a special way you have to burn the .iso to the cd? Thanx!

There certainly shouldn't be. The boot record part is built when you create the iso. Not when you burn it.

yes you have to burn the iso image. then the burning software will extract the image and burn the contents. just buring an iso to a disk is a good way to backup the iso but thats it!

If you are using K3B then just select the task "Burn ISO image" and it will take care of it for you. You do not want to try and burn an iso as a data cd because then the image will not be bootable.

I had a similar problem. I got around it when I noticed, in windows explorer, that there was an icon associated with the ISO files that indicated the CD burning software recognized that file type. I double clicked the ISO files in explorer and the disk burning software came up and burned the disk correctly. I did that with each of the three install disks and was able to boot off disk 1 and complete the install.
