Burning a LiveDVD


I downloaded the livedvd iso of suse 10.0 a little bit ago but I can't get it to boot. my boot sequence is correct and I've ruined two dvds already so It's something else I'm doing wrong. Anyone care to explain to me exactly how to burn a livedvd?

Welcome to LQ!

To burn an iso to DVD in a terminal:

/usr/bin/growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hda=slackware-10.1-DVD.iso

Change /dev/hda to your drive, and slackware-10.1-DVD.iso to the
correct path and name of your DVD iso image.

Edit: That was assuming you have a Linux distro to use.
If only Windows, just read the instructions at the Linux ISO site.

You're welcome.

Your post and UserCP were incomplete. If you'd add
your distro to the UserCP, and include a bit more
info in your posts, it would help us help you.
