    Howto burn an ISO image ?

    As many distros are about to release their new versions, it maybe usefull to post it again (Picked from Mandrake)

    Howto burn an ISO image ?
    All the CD-Writing software can use ISO image to burn directly a CD-Rom.

    Important note: take care to download the ISO in binary mode (FTP). By default Netscape download the file in ASCII mode which corrupt the image. You can check the integrity of the ISO file with the md5 key (md5sum mandrake.iso under Linux), go to http://www.etree.org/md5com.html to get the md5sum.exe version if you are using Windows)

    Please avoid downloading the ISO with a 56K modem line. If the download
    fails you can use "Resume" which allows you to continue the download. It
    works with ftp (reget), ncftp, CuteFTP, Getright, ...

    With Easy CD Creator:
    --------------------

    Open Easy CD Creator
    Go to "File"
    then to "Create CD from disc image"
    make sure to change the bottom drop down menu ("Files of type:") to say
    "ISO image files"

    It will do the rest after you browse to the *.iso file
    (Thanks for zacheyer)

    With WinOnCD:
    ------------

    you can select a
    "track-image" project when you click the New button. So long as you are
    in track mode, not file-system mode (how that looks depends on whether
    you have 3.0 or 3.5) then dragging a track image file onto the CD window
    should accept it as a raw track. WinOnCD uses .RAW as its own
    extension
    (Thanks Rick Jones)

    With Nero Burning Rom:
    ----------------------

    Open Nero.
    Close the wizard if it is started automatically.
    Go to "File"
    then to "Burn Image...".
    In the next dialog, click on "Image Files (*.nrg)" and select "All files
    (*.*)".
    Choose the .iso file and accept.
    In the following dialog make sure:
    - Type of Image is: Data Mode 1
    - Block size: 2048
    - Image header: 0
    - Image trailer: 0
    - All the checkboxes are unactive.
    Click "OK".
    In the next dialog check that the "write" and "finalize" option are active.
    Click on "Write".
    (Thanks Antonio Asensi)

    With CD-Record:
    ---------------

    CD-Writing HowTo:
    http://howto.linuxberg.com/ptHOWTO/CD-Writing-HOWTO

    For example:
    cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=4,0 mandrake.iso
    You get the number on the SCSI bus number with "cdrecord --scanbus".


    Enjoy your new distros !!!

    Re: Howto burn an ISO image ?

    Vista users without a working burning program, I suggest trying Active@ ISO burner by Lsoft Technologies. Just point the program to the Linux image file and click burn. done. Tried other programs that claimed to work with Vista, and they did not burn the image properly.
    ...Does anybody else feel like Congress simply bailed themselves out? Isn't that what they really mean by a bailout?
