    Dreamlinux


    Ok, so i was thumbing through the versions of linux today and i came across, Dreamlinux. It looks all nice and shiny so i downloaded the ISO from a torrent. So i burned the ISO and booted. It came up with DOS Prompt. I dont know what to do from there, know very few (if any) commands. So if someone could put me in the right direction to put dream on the computer that would be great.
    Thanks.

    At first, it is not DOS. It's like saying Windows is Linux

    You need to post more details so we can help

    Ok, When i Boot up my computer i hit F8 to go to boot options. Then i boot from the CD that i burned the ISO to. It scans my drives and usb ports. Then it give me a list of options. Then it let's me "Command"(like Configure). Im running windows right now, and i'd like to install linux, DreamLinux.

    Did you burn the ISO as an image?

    DreamLinux is LiveCD having option for install. at prompt, type 'help'.. it will show you the list of commands. i dont remember exact command right now.
    boot up dreamlinux. you can install it on HardDisk via control panel or Menu

    Looks like some sort of windows command processor options there. As Juan Pablo mentioned earlier make sure you burn the image as an iso image or cd image not as a bootable cd or just copying the files to cd.
    I have installed dreamlinux myself and as devils_casper said it just boots up as a live cd and you choose install option on the desktop or start menu.

    I thought i burned it correctly, i used a program called CDBurnerXP Pro 3.
    I dont know if i did it right, i told it to burn a ISO and make it a bootable CD. Was there something i did wrong?
