Burning ISO with Apple Burner

Ok, i downloaded mandrake 8.1 install and extension. When i mounted the ISO on Mac OSX ..I just copied eveything in the folder to the CD folder. But, when I put the CD into my other machine, I don't get the install prompt.

I know the CD is able to be read by Windows and Linux because iw as able to open the folders from both OSs.

Any ideas what the problem could be?

that "burn" thing...

is really flaky. Unfortunately, Apple didn't want to build too much CD burning functionality into the OS so you're stuck with the crappy application.

I ended up talking my department into buying Toast which seems to flawlessly burn ISOs. I had the same problem you're having only with burning Yellow Dog ISOs.

I'll take a look in the Apple Knowledge base but until they actually move the thing from Lotus notes over to WebObjects the whole thing is actually pretty impossible to use.

Thanks a lot.

How much is Toast? And can I try out a shareware?
