    Burning Linux to CD's


    Well I went and downloaded linux, my first time attempting to install them. As I started to burn the Files (I downloaded mandrake 10.1 not as a ISO or image, but as an actual folder full of files), I realise that CD3 is 850 megs! I can't fit it on my CD, so I went and turned it into an image to try and fit it on, that didn't work. Any ideas? Or am i SOL and need to DL the ISO's?

    Thanks abunch!

    You need to download the ISO's and burn them as an image to the CD.

    o jeez. I'm stupid. I just figured out that I did download the ISO's, but for some reason winrar decided to step in and treat them as a winrar archive. /sigh
