Default linux questions

okay, I went to the fedora website and downloaded the 4 cd iso files of fedora core 4. what I need to know is, how do I burn them to cd the right way? they are 4 winrar archives and I extracted them to folders one at a time. now my question is, what do I do with those files now? there are a bunch of files, and like 3 folders, each with other folders. I know they're iso images, but I see no .iso or .cue file to burn. I'm a little confused here.

Thanks for the help

get nero or a cd burner that can BURN IMAGES(.iso). An image is basically an exact copy of a cd that with software you can make an exact duplicate. So, just get something like nero and use the burn image wizard and you're set.

That is if you get the right files... try here... ftp://ftp.belnet.be/mirror/download....re/4/i386/iso/ then FC4-i386-disc1.iso, disk2, etc

EDIT... I beleive you just downloaded the content of the cd... you must download the specific ISO files.

This is because on you're system winrar is associated with the .iso file extension. This link will tell you how to change this:

Yes, it is because your winrar program is configured to seeing iso images, just go to preferences and file associations and then untick the iso box
After that, you should just see it as it is with the disc on it, i would recommend XP Burner Pro because i just find it much easier to burn iso images onto a cd that way
