Kubuntu live download


Noticed the Kubuntu live 5.1 is an iso.exe

Is this meant to run on Windows platform only and if not, is this ready to go and be burned to disk so I can check it out on my MDV10.2-KDEdesktop?

Thanks

Really? I went to the download page for USA, and this was the live CD link, and it appears to be .ISO, not .ISO.exe

K-live

Yes, I downloaded the i386 live version from Kubuntu site and it is listed on my partition as an iso.exe

This may be because I parked it on a FAT partition. K3b cannot find an iso.
Maybe I will try to remove the .exe extension or move it to a ext3 part to see if that changes anything

oK, removed the .exe and K3b now finds and burns an iso.
Here are the files burned to disk

file:/mnt/cdrom/autorun.inf
file:/mnt/cdrom/md5sum.txt
file:/mnt/cdrom/README.diskdefines
file:/mnt/cdrom/start.bmp
file:/mnt/cdrom/start.exe
file:/mnt/cdrom/start.ini
file:/mnt/cdrom/bin
file:/mnt/cdrom/casper
file:/mnt/cdrom/disctree
file:/mnt/cdrom/.disk
file:/mnt/cdrom/dists
file:/mnt/cdrom/doc
file:/mnt/cdrom/install
file:/mnt/cdrom/isolinux
file:/mnt/cdrom/pics
file:/mnt/cdrom/pool
file:/mnt/cdrom/preseed
file:/mnt/cdrom/programs
file:/mnt/cdrom/ubuntu

OK - if I dwnload to the FAT partition, the download mgr lists it as an iso.exe
If I dwnload to ext3 part then it seems to remain .iso
Here's the problem-am out of room on the ext3 partition. I have 8gb available on the FAT partition. Any way around this?

Thanks
