    Are these the files I need?


    Please tell me these are the only files I should have in my ISO directory!
    Folder: Boot. Contents: Help MSG file 1 KB. Live MSG file 282 KB. vmlinuz File 1.5 MB
    Folder: isolinux. Contents: boot Security Catalog 2 KB. isolinux BIN file 10 KB. isolinux.cfg CFG File 1 KB,
    Folder: loopbacks. Contents: Empty.

    I waited ages for it to download. Then I accidentally opened it with WinRar and began extracting it. Then I remembered you don't extract it and I canceled. Now that is all that is left. And I am ****ING ANGRY!

    If you have a file anywhere from your download containing md5sum information (just a text file) then this should give you an idea about whether or not you have all the files you need.

    Have you tried creating a bootable disk with your downloads?

    No. The files listed are the only files I managed to find after I screwed it up. I'm using Firefox for the download and I clicked Open when the file was done. I then clicked "Extract to..." on the WinRar menu and extracted to My Downloads. About halfway through the extraction, (Oh, and I had the ... folder highlighted when I did this... I hoe that what I was meant to highlight) I cancelled because I remember you just had to mount the file to a CD or virtual drive from the desktop. I looked at the desktop (the default download spot) and it wasn't there. (Because I opened thef ile instead of saving) I then went to the Downloads menu of Firefox and clicked open on the file and it said "The file has been moved or renamed or deleted blah blahb lah". At this time I am like.. ****! So then, I made this post and listed the files I did have from the download. Can you check your CD or download and see if the are proficient? I am just worried they aren't because if you add all the file sizes up it is no where near the download file (700MB). Also, with the three folders, how do I change them to and ISO if the files that I have are all I need?
