    testing-kde-cd doesn't boot


    i'm trying to install debian testing, and have downloaded and burned the kde-testing iso.

    however, when i turn on, or reboot, my machine, it doesn't boot. i've checked the boot sequence in the bios, and the cdrom is first.

    What process did you use to burn the ISO?

    Isn't the KDE Debian CD just a non-bootable set of packages? I think you will need the first CD as well

    i burned the iso on my gf's windows machine, by dragging it into the cdrom and clicking the 'burn these files' (or something similar) link.

    You should choose the "burn CD image" option. The .iso file is a disk image.

    Also, as Etch is now stable, you shouldn't use the testing image. Here is the Etch KDE CD:

    Yes, you are right about that. Debian testing is now called "lenny".

    You can use that as well.
