I tried burning it at the slowest speed, same problem.

I have come to the conclusion that it cannot be the CD/DVD drive, because the same problem is happening when trying to boot from the USB. The only thing I can think is wrong is the burner, but I tried both Brasero and K3B, both caused the same problem. Are the files on the CD unpackaged right? On my Ubuntu and Fedora disks there seems to be much more folders and items, and the squashfg.img (over 650mb) takes up most of the CD, is it suppose to do that? Could it be that there is another step to burning it?

Different distros put different things on the CD's, so it's hard to say. If you've got an ISO image, and you burn it to disc as such, then you're doing it right. Slower speed sometimes solves it, but not this time I guess.

Since you know Fedora works on the same hardware, then it's likely that CentOS Live has a problem. You could either try the FULL CentOS DVD image, or load Fedora (or openSUSE, Ubuntu, or whatever else), and be done. Is there a specific NEED you're trying to fill with CentOS?

I have found that CentOS is extremely quick and snappy on the computer I was thinking to install it on. It comes with the applications needed and nothing else to take space. I was thinking about Puppy Linux, but it is too small and is hard to install on the computer.

Well, Linux is pretty snappy in general. CentOS is a server-grade distro, designed for long uptime/slow update cycles, and most any distro comes with (basically) the same set of applications. If you've got at least an 80GB drive, you shouldn't have to worry about space at all....I'm using the latest openSUSE, and have EVERYTHING installed (dev libraries, sources, the works), and I'm only about 30GB used. Just food for thought.

Thanks guys, I have successfully installed CentOS by the DVD iso, but then decided to go with Mandriva.
