    ok i found out on the irc that i need to make the iso files into many files. unfortunitly the reason i want to switch to a diffrent os is that xp is so unstable i cant burn ne thing. is there a way to do the same thing without nero or using a cd burner?

    ok i couldnt get my xp to format a drive as fat so i got the cd's burnt...only took 2 weeks but i did it.

    i burnt the images (not the iso files but in a way that makes all those files) on to cd-rw's because i ran out of cd-r's. n now the install wont detect the instalation files. it boots from cd all happy cheery but wont install.

    help?
