Firstly please excuse my ignorance on the matter. I am trying to get a Linux live cd working. I downloaded LiveCDTR2.iso file for PCLinuxOS. I then burned the file to CD as is (should I have extracted it or something) and tried it in two computers (both with cd as the first boot source, but they just booted into Windows. Any advice on what I am doing wrong would be appreciated.
Thanks stephen, I didn't have any problem burning the file onto the CD. I am just wondering if I have done it correctly. I used Nero and just dragged the file onto the Nero page and hit burn. I am just wondering do I need to select anything other than burn ISO disk. Is there anyway of checking the CD to see if it has been burned in the correct format.
I am pretty sure that is what I have done using Nero 5. I followed the wizard as suggested options I used were "Other Cd formats>Create cd from an image file you are then presented with the dialogue box to select the iso file and then select burn.As a side note there is a note to say nero will burn the image file with a .nrg extention, is this where I am going wrong. Would following the wizard as suggested give a different result.
Looking at the cd with windows explorer I get: similar details to the one you show: Windows icon for a folder "boot" File folder 14/02/07 Windows icon for a folder "isolinux" File folder 14/02/07 Window icon "livecd.sqfs"705,936kb sqfsfile 14/02/07
Again thanks octal not sure if it just me being dim
I think this is pretty much what I have done with Nero. I will try and do another cd with nero the way they suggested to see if it makes any difference. Then I will have runout of 80min CDs I have 74min ones but they don't seem quite big enough.
Thanks - I was wondering about that. It is just that the websites you go to to download the PClinuxOS are a bit of a maze, there is not just one nice download button to press you have to select from a number of options, can you suggest a website where it is straight forward to download the final version of PClinuxOS
