Question Buring ISO's

Ok heres the deal i've downloaded Mandrake 8.2 and RedHat 7.3
I MD5sum check all the iso's and the crc's are corrrect. When I try to burn either distro of linux useing nero on winblows xp, they seem to burn fine ,but in the middle of installing I will get and error and installation will abort. Ive run -linux mediacheck on the winblow machine and it passes, but when I run it on the other machine it fails. PLEASE HELP me figure out what the burning problem might be.

What kind of hardware do you have? Did you try installing using the text install instead of graphic? What is the error you get?

I've also downloaded ISO images for Red Hat Linux 7.3 and burned it on Windows using Nero and I installed it successfully without any issue. The only thing I didn't do was media check during installation But if already done media check on the CD, maybe it could the hardware problem.

Nero> File> Burn from image or you'll fail.

I just burned one on Linux WHILE browsing this forum. Granted, I used a command line instead of a crashable GUI. It took about the same time Nero did. But you CAN'T do anything else while Nero is burning unless you have a fast PC.

I've been burning CD's in linux for about 2.5 years and have not once burned a coaster! In windoze I would make about 1 in 5! I would get all sorts of buffer overflows in windoze but not in linux.
