we can't really help you an awful lot any iso image burnt correclty to a cd will boot if the system it is on is set to do so... this covers things like bios configuration etc... +a common mistake is that an iso is simply copied to the CD, and not burnt as an image. if you look at the cd in windows, you should actually see files, directores etc... is *is* a totally normal cdr then, and should look like one.

Cheers,

initially when I downloaded the file, I could not see the installation files. But when I used a convertor, i saw all the files of the ISO image. Now, I have burned the CD, it won't booth from it. I just want to do a fresh installation on the DELL PowerEdge 1600SC system...I am interested in doing this so I would have a system to practice PERL as well as Linux administration.
Thanks...

Ok.

I don't think you should convert it, just burn the ISO image to a cd using this program.. Or you could use the win32 version of cdrecord, as that's what you'll possibly be using in linux XD

The ISO is a raw cd image, from start to finish. If you convert it, you'll get all the files off it, but lose the boot code.

Cheers,
Aaron

Fc5 Cd #1

I downloaded the iso image of the first CD and the boot image boot.iso

Using Roxio under XP Prof I burned the main image for CD1 and gave Roxio

the boot.iso to make the CD bootable.

I tried this process 5-6 time but the CD wouldn't boot.

I am trying cdrecord as suggested on the FC site.

Now my problem is due to the fact that I have scsi HDs and cdrecord wants

some hierglyphics for scsi (even though the CDs are not connected by scsi

but by IDE)


cdrecord --device=/media/cdrecorder1 -tao -eject FC-5-i386-disc1.iso
cdrecord: Bad Option: --device=/media/cdrecorder1.
Usage: cdrecord [options] track1...trackn

Use cdrecord -help
to get a list of valid options.

Use cdrecord blank=help
to get a list of valid blanking options.

Use cdrecord dev=b,t,l driveropts=help -checkdrive
to get a list of drive specific options.

Use cdrecord dev=help
to get a list of possible SCSI transport specifiers.

Hey,

Do this (assuming /dev/hdc is your cdrecorder):

Code:
cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc FC-5-i386-disc1.iso
That should work.

Cheers,
Aaron
