    not to sure what it is that you're trying to do.

    Are you trying to burn a bootable Linux CD? Or are you trying to read a CD and only debian will read it? Or is it something else?

    Please enlighten me.


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

    are u sure ur buring it right... cause bootable isos need to be burned with the first sector in proper place. IF u are using Nero, check for an option called create bootable CD and when it asks for the bootable image point to ur linux iso. For any other burning software check if it provides any similar function. nero is available for demo download
