    I don't really get it. Did you accidently start a new thread instead of replying to an existing one?

    If you put the Red Hat CD in while XP is running and browse to the CD, what do you see?

    The first time I tried to install Linux, I burned the CD wrong. Instead of making the CD from the .iso image, I just made a data CD with a big .iso file on it. Did you do that by accident?

    Also, some CD burners have an option you have to enable or disable to allow the CD to be bootable. Is that enabled?

    I know these are simple questions, but we need to know more before we can help.
