What the hell happened to I just downloaded from them a few days ago.

Forget that link I gave you. They have all old versions. Just go right to the distros site.

I was just downloading from them 30 mins ago...go figure.

So anyway, once I have downloaded the .iso images, how do I go about getting them onto a blank CD? Do I just burn the downloaded .iso image onto the CD?

Thanks for the reply!

Gatech's ftp is a nice place to download ISO's for many distros. And their connection is REALLY fast. Im on 2mbit cable, and they max my connection all day.

I download all my ISO's from this server.

As far as burning the ISO's, I use XCDroast to burn them(assuming your running linux). If your not using linux... I guess you wouldn't be here Anyways you would have to install xcdroast, and click on the setup button first and configure everything. It's all GUI, so it's pretty easy. You'll have to set up a directory for xcdroast... it will be on the HD Settings tab labeled as "temporary image storage directories". Simply map that to a pre-existing directory, or mkdir a new directory from the command line and add that directory to the list. After you have done that save the setup config. You need to move your ISO's to the image storage directory you specified, and when you start xcdroast again, the ISO's will be listed.

Click on the write tracks button on the left, and click on the layout tab... select the ISO and click add, then go back to the write tracks tab and click the "Write tracks" button at the bottom and it will begin burning your CD.

I hope this helps...

that ftp site keeps prompting me for a password and username....what do I do? I'm running win98 (sorry!), as I cannot access the 'net through linux.

cat name.iso| cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=12 -
that would burn the iso name.iso, assuming your
device is correct.
you can also get cygwin and cdrecord in a package for
windows and use the same commands.
