i'm sorry for this stupid question


I need to know what software under WIN 98 shall i use to burn .ISO Linux Mandrake 9.1 to make it bootable.

I thought that CDRwin 5 will work but it doesn't.

So what is other free software i could use?

Thanx

If you can "borrow" a copy of Nero I know that works just fine. Just make sure you are burning an image, not a file, to test, after the burn open up the CD and if there are many folders/files then it's good. If there is 1 .iso file, it's wrong.

Cool

Those people were spawned though, not born.

Grown in some geek lab, with cryptonite plated walls so they couldn't get out, and nothing but a bash prompt and 2 keys, a 1 and a 0.

Those people really are creepy

Cool
