Making a Linux boot disc

by npchilds / October 6, 2004 1:14 PM PDT

Okay, newbie question I know....how do I turn the 700 MB Suse Linux ISO 9600 file on my hard drive into a bootable Linux system on a CD, and what software do I use to do this? Linux will be booting on another machine with an older version of Caldera Linux already on it.

I am running WinXP pro.

Thanks,

PC

Hi, and thanks for the reply, we have an OEM version of Nero (not sure what version) but I've had earlier versions of Nero on my machine and didn't like it, this version is unstable so I'd rather not rely on it.

I'll have to take a look through the CD-Burning software downloads here and elsewhere.

Thanks again,

PC

First, I have never found Nero to be unstable if installed right. Sure beats the alternatives.
Second, just go to Nero homepage and download latest(free) update for your OEM(should be 6.0,but older ones are there,too). Thats the purpose of the OEM. Should be 6.3.2.25. Thats "package 1". Package
2 may not be necessary, but could be of use. I would stop
there(and have). Think I tried the others and uninstalled them. chuck

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
