    bootable CD


    hello everyone! need a little help here...

    i just got a downloaded copy of all 3 Red Hat 9 iso files. anyway, i can't boot up using my floppy since the drive's busted. i was thinking that i'd burn the 1st iso instead to a CD, and have it boot from there... the only problem is, how do i make it a bootable CD when i burn it? i have a copy of Red Hat 6.1 and it's a bootable CD.

    one more thing, do i burn the iso files directly to the CDs, or do i have to extract what's inside the iso file and then burn it?

    the important thing is to Burn as a CD image, dont drag and drop the ISO onto a CD. If you have Nero on windows, search for "nero", i have posted instructions on correctly burning images recently.
