    Burning Fedora 3 ??


    I have downloaded fed3 from redhat. I downloaded iso 1,2,3 & 4. I want to know the correct way to burn these iso so they become bootable. I read the redhat instructions but they are not clear. I have burn linux cds in the past but they were never bootable. Im currently using easy cd creator 5. I choose to make a bootable cd option but for some reason the linux cds are not bootable. Do i have to extract these iso? or change the format ??Can some help me with this issue?

    First, you need to burn the "image" into a real format...
    the iso is like a zipped file. If you cd content is the actual ISO, then it wont work.
    I suggest using CloneCD, Nero, Alcohol... to burn the iso.

    Then into your BIOS, you simply select the boot option to laod the cdrom first.

    i'm not sure about easy cd creator, but nero has an option to "burn image' that's all you need to do, no extracting

    If you cant get your hands on anything other then Creator, get a tool called
    DEAMON TOOL... it'll simulate a cd. You will be able to load the iso in memory and copy cd-to-cd from creator... DEAMON simulates a CDROM with the actual content of the iso... that can work good for your actual configuration
