Burning a LINUX iso image for use as a boot disk/CD


Hello Everyone,
I have downloaded an *.ISO image of Linux.
I am trying to make a Linux CD bootable disk.
I have a DVD+RW drive and DVD+RW blank cd.
I am using Nero Burning Rom version 6 (it also includes Nero Express).
I am using Windows XP Pro and I hate it!!!! I want to start learning to use Linux for everything instead of Microsoft Windows.
Please help me figure out how I can do this...also please be as detailed as possible as I have never done anything like this before.

I would like to ask everyone to please reply to this thread even though others have replied before you did. This will help me learn a little about linux from different people who have different levels of experience.

Thanks,
Bobby Howerton


Linux Rules!!!

Hi!

to burn the iso, start nero, open>>choose image file, maybe you have to tell nero to look for *.iso files>>burn

what distro would you like to burn ?

In Nero select burn image rather than write cd in the pull down menu, this should open a window so you can select the proper image to burn. I don't use Nero 6 as i have always found 5.5 to be stable and it does what I want, but 6 should work the same. Nyah Levi

Boby,
I tried to do this using the DVD+RW and it said that it was the wrong type of media and told me that i had to use a CD R/RW.

Why won't it accept the DVD+RW?

hmm..I didn't understand...is it a DVD+RW DISK? Maybe you should use a normal CD, if it's this
I don't think SuSe has a DVD version. As I know there is 1 ISO that has to be burned on a normal CD and the rest of the installation come over the net.
So try it out, use a normal and simple CD, not a DVD.

Good luck!

Post Burning a bootable cd from .iso using Nero6

Double click on your Nero start smart icon. Move across to the Copy & Backup icon then to the Burn Image to Disk icon. Find the folder the .iso file is in then where it says "Files of Type:" select "Image Files (*.nrg;*.iso;*.cue)" highlight the .iso you want to burn then select Open. Select the correct drive, speed, and number of copies you want to burn and click on Next. That should be it! Be sure to use just a regular CD-R.
