    FreeBSD iso cannot create installation CD


    Hey, I have for a long time wanted to try FreeBSD so I downloaded 6.2. CD 1 and 2 with the .iso extension and I wanted to burn them down on CD's. I used the program "gnomebaker" where I simply putted in the CD, dragged the .iso file for CD1 down on for burn and I pressed burn and it started to burn my CD. Though the outcome was not what I was hoping for, the file on the CD is not a lot of directories but instead just the .iso file. Can anybody help me with my little problem here?

    i have never used gnomebaker but it looks like gnomebaker has just copied .iso file to CD instead of burning it as an image. check if there is any option like BURN IMAGE to DISK in its Menu.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I am afraid Gnomebaker only is for data cd's. I think I need another program. Any recommendations?

    burn it with 'cdrecord'.
    execute this
    Code:
    cdrecord -v -tao -data speed=8 dev=/dev/hdc <your_file.iso>
    InfraRecoder is for Windows OSes.

    Oh well, I got this:
    "

    debian:/home/morten/Downloads# cdrecord -v -tao -data speed=8 dev=/dev/hdc 6.2-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso
    TOC Type: 1 = CD-ROM
    scsidev: '/dev/hdc'
    devname: '/dev/hdc'
    scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
    scsidev: 'ATA:/dev/hdc'
    devname: 'ATA:/dev/hdc'
    scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
    wodim: No such file or directory.
    Cannot open SCSI driver!
    For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
    For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
    For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
    the wodim documentation.

    "

    I have no idea about how the program works so whatever it replies me is of very little help to me.
