Burning dilema

I want to burn discs for installing Linux.
However, first I would like to try LiveCD, but this also applies to making CDs for normal installation.

Since it has to be bootable I have to change options.
And I put them as follows
And these are other options

So which one I should choose?

And should I burn with ISO Level 1 or ISO Level 2?

Thanks in advance.

To create a Linux LiveCD or installation CD just download the ISO file for it, and tell your CD-writing software to use that. ISO files create exact (bootable) duplicates of the original. I think that the option that you are looking at is for adding boot support to a CD that you mastered yourself.

none of those are the right things to use, and none will work. the option, create disk from image, or burn image to disk, is what you want.
