Question installing suse 10.1


well i have five iso images of suse 10.1 which i first burnt as iso only.
it did not become a bootable cd.(i burnt using inbuilt windows burning interface)

i then used magiciso to extract the components of the disc. i though could see all the components but there was no setup file.
still i burnt it using the windows interface and still it wasnt a bootalble cd.

then i used nero and still it wasnt a bootable cd.(though i didnt burn it to make a bootable cd.)

please help me that even though i dont see any setup files, would burning it as a bootable cd help me installing it?

how else can i make a bootable cd?

reply in urgent.

The new version of OpenSUsE is out by the way - 10.2. Not sure about Windows iso burning software.

Ah. Just found this. Looks like it might help:

These instructions are for Knoppix, but I'm sure you can adapt it for SuSE.

You're not the only one. What does it mean, "it shows some a:/to load from"? What shows this? When do you see it?

Directly after the BIOS screen? Do you get any boot loader message? Probably you need to tell your BIOS to boot from the CD.
