re: Mandrake.iso 9.0

hi ppl...

i am haveing a major problem, and hopefully i can
get it solved here...
this is my very first time w/ Linux Mandrake 9.0
so heres my story; 1st i downloaded 3 iso's
Mandrake90-cd1-inst.i586.iso (694MB)
Mandrake90-cd2-ext.i586.iso (699MB)
Mandrake90-cd3-i18n.i586.iso (456MB)
md5sums.90 used MD5Summer.exe and all 3 iso's
were a ok..
here's where i get a messed up i think? i used a program
called CDMage. iso extractor, dang i need a screen shot
1st. line = Image (Mandrake90-cd1-inst.i586.iso)
- session 1 (bootable)
+ Track 1 (MODE 1/2048)(Mandrake90-cd1-inst.i586.iso)
+ folder; Mandrake
+ folder; doc
+ folder; dosutilil
+ folder; images
+ folder; isolinux
+ folder; misc
+ folder; tutorial
i hope someone knows this app (cdmage)
so here's what i need to know "What line do i Extract?"
i've gone thru 4cdroms trying to get this right but not doing
very well
the main problem is booting from the cd, i also tryed createing
a floppy to boot from which worked great, but when it came to
reading my cdrom, it could not be found...??

I dont use "cdmage" so I cant give you specific help .... but....
cdmage to me looks more of an ISO editor/repairer.
You dont need to change the ISO at all......just burn it.
In windows, nero or easy cd are what I'd use.

Welcome to LQ, tHE0ldfella.

The problem we seem to have here is that when you download the iso file, you believe it to be a compressed file, like a .ZIP - it is not! It is the entire CD as it should be when burnt. You should not extract anything at all, simply fire up your favourite CD burning program and burn the image to the CD as an image. If once the CD is done, you open it up in Explorer and find that there's only 1 file on there, the iso file, then you've just made yourself a coaster and you need to take a look around on your program and burn cd from image.

Good luck.
