installing the latest VectorLinuxfrom ISO does not work
I burned the latests vectrolinux and tired to boot from the CD. I got the message that this was not a boot disk and the system continued with the HD boot.
Now, I looked at the disk using file manager. Th edist is readable, contains autorun etc and all the files (I think) necessary for the installation.
My CD drive works because I can boot from my CD zenwalk or knoppix.
Is there a problem with the ISO posted on the vectorlinux site?

Get the .md5 file and check it.
The md5 should be where the iso is on the vector site. I just recently installed vector on my older pc so I don't know what's up here. What program did you use for burning the iso to cd? I advise using:
Those liinks are both for windows, if you're on linux trying to install a different linux, use k3b, it checks the md5 and burns the iso for you. It's a very easy app. Hope that helps.

Yep, it definitely sounds like either a bad ISO file was used, a bad burn took place, or a bad blank CD was used.
