install trouble


I dual booting xp and xandros. I would like to try out mepis. I downloaded and burned the iso using nero. I restart with the cd in and it doesn't recognize the cd. Do you think I burned it incorrectly? On the cd is says:
SimplyMEPIS-3.3.1-1.iso

Yes. There should be files and folders on the CD, not just one big file.

You need to select burn CD image.

Burn it on a mac... i think I got it. On the CD it has the folders...Linux ...boot...pkgs.
Will mepis jump in the boot order considering I am currently dual booting xandos and xp? I think it is lilo right now.

Also, should I create a new partition or will mepis do that?
