burning bootable fc3 disc 1 from iso


I have been having trouble getting a viable boot cd for fc3 disc 1 using k3b and x cd roast in rh 7.3. I like the older releases cuz they haven't shrunk in size to fewer Meg's than a cd holds. I like the variety of progs in the older distros.
Thanks,
Philip Dahlquist

ps
I guess it is pointless to say it is on a dell inspi 8200 lapdog
Thanks again.

If you use something as old as fc3 you aren't doing yourself any favors.
Will it boot from cd drive?

Does you boot from other bootable cd/dvd's.

Use plain cdrecord from http://sourceforge.net

Did you read the entire sentence? That is RH 7.3 not RHEL 7.3... (is the current RHEL still at 7.0?) I do not understand the OP's reason for running older versions and may not care about bugs or security issues. I will only say it is not recommended.

Have you verified the other CDs burned successfully? Have you verified the ISO file via its MD5SUM? Make sure it is not the SRPM disc ISO. I would try burning the disk using cdrecord vs K3b or xcdroast.

Sorry, but like most here, I don't understand the logic.

You can download the net install ISO images for many current, modern distros, which come in at WELL under the 600MB for a CD-ROM. Once you're booted and the installer is running, it gets the latest and greatest of everything from their network repositories. And as far as program variety...you ARE aware that you have MORE programs available now, than you did years back, right? Many programs that are available now won't even COMPILE on something as old as FC3 or RH7.

...which is yet ANOTHER reason to get a current distro. FC3 won't have ANY IDEA about new hardware, and you may not EVER be able to get things working correctly.

Do you honestly think you could load Windows 95 on a modern machine?? Why would you think that FC3 would know about Wi-Fi, SATA, bluetooth, etc., when some of these things were NOT EVEN INVENTED when FC3 was released? If you plan on plugging in a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi dongle...good luck. Same with using things like Dropbox or Skype...they just won't run.

Honestly, if this is a new installation, there is just no reason/need to load something that went end-of-life almost NINE YEARS AGO. Even if you absolutely needed this (which is unlikely), it would be FAR better to run FC3 in a virtual machine, to support whatever old software you might need.
