Well I finally got around to burning an iso with Roxio. There are two ways to go about it.
  1. Right click on .iso file and select "Burn to CD"
  2. From Roxio Easy CD Creator, Select File -> Record Disc from Image...

There is only one small problem with Roxio. It doesn't finalize the DVD! It seems you were correct about Roxio, you end up with a non-bootable DVD. Roxio does work with CD's but it seems to have problems with DVD's.

I'll let you know if I figure anything out.

Dear Opjose,

Here's what I did to finally get Mandrake 10.1 Official DVD ISO installed on my Soyo Motherboard Board.

1- In configuration part of Installation it showed 2 items that were not configured:
a) my graphics card
b) my eto network card

For graphics drivers I selected Xorg> then selected nv. I then selected generic for my monitor.

Mandrake 10.1 Official finally installed for the very 1st time and I was finally able to boot to my desktop. The only problem I had was with my eto Network card, which I never had a problem installing this card in the past. But this time it gave me royal fits and I am not sure why. I messed around with my Network configuration 3X times and nothing worked. I ran ifconf to see if I could locate any possible signs of problems because Network would install but still showed broken in system tray at the bottom of the screen no matter what I did.

So I ran ifconfig in SU mode and it did not show my IP address, I also ran ifconfig -a and nothing.

I went to boot-loader and selected force-no-apic and rebooted and still could not get onto the internet.

I then booted in Windows XP to get into ipconfig (I have a dual boot pc). I was trying to get my DNS number and subnet mask number from Windows side to install my network card in manual mode with Mandrake 10.1 Official. When I rebooted back into Mandrake somehow my internet connection problem was fixed. I am not sure if rebooting my pc solved my Network connection setting problems or if selecting force-no-apic solved it. I did try to restart xserver once before, and even rebooted so setting would take place. So it's a mystery as to what was going on here with my Network card. As I've stated, I never had an issue in the past installing my eto card. It's one of the easiest things to configure.

Now to set up Xorg ? I reinserted my DVD ISO. Went to Konsole>su>urpmi.addmedia xorg6.8 removable://mnt/cdrom2/xorg-6.8 with ./hdlist.cz

Since my DVD was mounted I ran this command>urpmi.addmedia xorg6.8 removable://mnt/cdrom/xorg-6.8 with ./hdlist.cz

Then: urpmi xorg-x11-6.8.1






Now to set NVIDIA drivers, I went to Mandrake Control Center>Hardware>Grapics card>clicked on Configuration tool. It showed Custom and I clicked on it and selected Geforce4generic. Actually it was already highlighted and I proceeded.

I restarted Xserver and saw NVIDIA splash screen and ran glxgears:
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS
1680 frames in 5.0 seconds = 336.000 FPS
1540 frames in 5.0 seconds = 308.000 FPS

That was it. NVIDIA splash screen works and Mandrake 10.1 Official finally installed on my Soyo KT Dragon Motherboard.
