Burn distributions to CD


I'm a newbie and I don't understand how to burn a linux distribution CD. I've seen these FTP servers with distributions but I don't understand nothing how to. For the moment I only have windows on my computers. I'm especially interested to get these Linux CD bootable distributions as Knoppix and Mandrake Move.

This page may be of help.

It comes from www.linuxiso.org - the first place I normally go to for ISOs. Follow the above link and you will see options for several different programs.

First of all, terminology: Linux From Scratch is entirely different from distributions. Distributions package all the programs you need in a nice little bundle. LFS users build their system from the ground up, getting all their software directly from the creators and compiling it all themselves.

The linux bootable cd's you're talking about probably come as .iso images. You can burn these with a burning program such as Nero. If you don't have Nero and you don't want to buy it, you can get Alcohol 120% on a 15-day trial for free.

Thanks. I just thought From scratch was a forum for distribution newbies. So the ISO-file is the whole distribution in one file. Linuxiso.org is perfect. I've come a step further.

Moved: Not LFS related.
