[SOLVED] problem loading damn small linux
I tried loading Damn Small Linux and when my computer rebooted the second time (after selecting for it to boot from CD) it went to dos. I've looked everywhere and havent found out how to load it and don't know anything about dos. I could use it if given step by step directions but otherwise I don't have much experience with it. Was it supposed to do that? If so, where are some good directions on how to get me from there to having it loaded or can anyone offer some advice? I have Windows XP right now and want to have them both on the computer. And yes, I'm new to Linux. Thanks!

Linux doesn't use DOS at all, so I'm not understanding the question or problem. Can you describe the situation better? It would probably help others to help you if you can post any errors or screen messages, as well.
You can check the following HowTo for making sure you properly downloaded and burned the ISO file to the blank disk as an image:

I will try to burn the CD again and see how it goes. Thanks again!

Hi and Welcome !
You have created bootable CD and CD Burner package has installed Dr. DOS to make it bootable.
.iso images are bootable by default. Do not create Bootable CD/DVD. Select Burn Image to Disc option in your CD/DVD burner package. Almost all CD/DVD Burner packages have this option.
You can use Windows OS based freeware Imgburn to burn CD/DVD. I never had any problem with it.
