Newbie could use some help please!
This is my post, I have SUSE Linux 9.2 on a 'free' DVD off a magazine, and 'Ubuntu' from the same disc. I've tried setting my bios to boot from cd yet it just ignores any form of booting from this disc. I explored the dvd and 'dragged' both operating systems to the XP desktop and burned them as data discs to seperate cd's, tried booting and again nothing. I've had an interest in Linux for years now, but I'm getting disheartened, and wondered if I'm overlooking something? Do I have to disect the folder and find a bootable folder or something? Could use some advice please,
it sounds like your bios wont let you boot from the cd/dvd drive ...this is a fairly common problem ...but there is a solution you will need to d/l a bootdisk and put it on a floppy and boot that which in turn will boot your cd drive.....

And make sure that you are not just burning a data disc, but an image disk! What are those files you've pulled of the DVD? If the're .iso files, you use something like Nero to 'burn image'.Stumbling around the 'net:
And make sure that you are not just burning a data disc, but an image disk!
