SimplyMepis 3.3

i recently downloaded vs 3.3 and i like it. now 6.0 can be downloaded.
SimplyMepis3.3iso copied onto cd and installed just fine. i downloaded vs.6.0 onto cd and want to upgrade to it but when i insert it into the drive and reboot the pc it just keeps rebooting. both are ISO
files. SimplyMepis_6.0-beta3_i386.iso is what is on the cd. why won't
it install to upgrade 3.3 to 6.0?

The CDs aren't usually bootable if you just copy the ISO file to them (as such, I find it odd that you got it to work with Mepis 3.3), you need to burn the ISO as an image.
