Assuming you have Nero. Go to Image/backup and click Burn iomage to disk. Locate your Linux Distro format (.iso) and burn it onto a CD

ok dammit this is so friggin broken. i first of all could not find any .cue .iso or any other image files. i did however find a .img file but when i tried to burn it it said blah blah this is not a known type you have to set stuff up and it gave me some options and i left everything as it is and burned it. i tried then to look at the contents of the disk and it said f:\ is not accesible incorrect function. then i tried to boot with it and it didnt work...


sorry for the double post

Right-click the .iso file and open with Nero. It should come up with the Burn menu.

Right now, I'm going to stop the fun of looking for drivers, and swap my linux Os for W98Se (Memphis), just to play with Dos (at least it doesn't need drivers)...
EDIT: and...of course...Whistler for work...

Well I'm gona let one comp with ubuntu.
I was thinking right now that perhaps you have a problem with a file
extension.
Some iso files download as .rar (but they aren't); the reason is that you have enabled the 'don't show known file extensions', and therefore you can't see the
.iso extension.
The same can happen with other known file extensions.
Check that...
