    Mandriva bit-torrent to ISO


    Ok, I admit it, I don't know how to convert a downloaded bit-torrent into a burnable ISO image. I downloaded the single CD of Mandriva 2007 and it's in bit-torrent format, how do I now convert it into an ISO that I can burn?

    Please note the file is on one of my Windows partitions as I was booted into XP when I made the download,can the conversion be only done via Linux?

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Ummm you need to add more info because from what it sounds like you didn't use a bit torrent program to download that did you? .torrents are only for telling bit torrent programs what and where to download something from.

    Download a torrent program such as uTorrent, BitTorrnado, KTorrent, or Azeurus (sp?) and open the file with that program and it will begin downloading the ISO image file.

    Both the official Bittorrent client (http://www.bittorrent.com/download.html) and Azureus (http://azureus.sourceforge.net/download.php) work on Windows. After installing the official client, just double click your torrent and it will start downloading.
