    I've used cd-rw to make .iso cds, and if you burn them correctly, they will boot like all properly burned iso cds. Remember to burn the image onto the cd, not the iso file

    So you burn the image onto the cd, but does the image have all the software and stuff on it?

    It will have all the software etc on it, but are you Dude2000 talking about making it into a bootable cd like Knoppix?

    Depending on whaich burning softare you are using, make sure you choose DAO, for the burning mode, and ISO9660 instead of Auto.If these options are there. I always use slower write speeds roo(4x) These settings are based on K3B

    Do you burn both the iso and image onto the cd or just the image?

    You burn the iso as an image to the cd. In k3b there is an option to burn a cd image, select this, and select the iso file you want to burn, and then burn at a speed of no more than x4.
