Default burning iso images

Can I burn Iso images to a cd-rw? I want to install debian linux, but there are like 14 images, and I don't want to waste 14 cd's for a one time install. I have a second computer which I can use to burn them, so I could rotate between 2 cd-rw's that would be used to install debian.

In Nero, just select the option to burn an image.

Yes, ISO images can be burned to CD-R's. Some programs like Nero, let you use BurningROM to burn images.

CD-R, CR-RW, whatever...they're the same other than the fact that CD-RW's can be rewritten.

Lol, if you had a dvd burner handy you could do all that in one or two dvds. Going with the cd-rws seems like the best bet.

You only need to download one ISO! Each of the ISOs will be a different version, so pick the one with the highest number, for example pick 3.4 over 1.2, and download it!

Offocial download site, not a mirror. All of the files are the same version, so I think they have to be the installer cds. Besides, there are two dvd images, so if they were different versions, there would be 14 dvd's, also.

Glad to know that the cd-rw's will work.

Thanks for your help.
