Post For those who need help to burn your ISO linux image onto the disk

Howto burn an ISO image ?
All the CD-Writing software can use ISO image to burn directly a CD-Rom.

Important note: take care to download the ISO in binary mode (FTP). By default Netscape download the file in ASCII mode which corrupt the image. You can check the integrity of the ISO file with the md5 key (md5sum mandrake.iso under Linux), go to http://www.etree.org/md5com.html to get the md5sum.exe version if you are using Windows)

Please avoid downloading the ISO with a 56K modem line. If the download
fails you can use "Resume" which allows you to continue the download. It
works with ftp (reget), ncftp, CuteFTP, Getright, ...

With Easy CD Creator:
--------------------
Open Easy CD Creator
Go to "File"
then to "Create CD from disc image"
make sure to change the bottom drop down menu ("Files of type:") to say
"ISO image files"

It will do the rest after you browse to the *.iso file
(Thanks for zacheyer)

With WinOnCD:
------------
you can select a
"track-image" project when you click the New button. So long as you are
in track mode, not file-system mode (how that looks depends on whether
you have 3.0 or 3.5) then dragging a track image file onto the CD window
should accept it as a raw track. WinOnCD uses .RAW as its own
extension
(Thanks Rick Jones)

With Nero Burning Rom:
----------------------
Open Nero.
Close the wizard if it is started automatically.
Go to "File"
then to "Burn Image...".
In the next dialog, click on "Image Files (*.nrg)" and select "All files
(*.*)".
Choose the .iso file and accept.
In the following dialog make sure:
- Type of Image is: Data Mode 1
- Block size: 2048
- Image header: 0
- Image trailer: 0
- All the checkboxes are unactive.
Click "OK".
In the next dialog check that the "write" and "finalize" option are active.
Click on "Write".
(Thanks Antonio Asensi)

With CD-Record:
---------------
CD-Writing HowTo:
http://howto.linuxberg.com/ptHOWTO/CD-Writing-HOWTO

For example:
cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=4,0 mandrake.iso
You get the number on the SCSI bus number with "cdrecord --scanbus"

Hmm, the Sony Hotburn seemed not suitable, really can't find anywhere that Iomega's hotburn can burn ISO.

Anyway, this is really out of topic. Thanks to all the kind folks for the info in here ;p

For people who are using school's lab which doesn't allow you to install CD-Burning software, you can try XP- Burn or Easy CD Creator.

Simple proggie to burn ISO images to CD-R. Both program are freeware. XPBURN runs under XP ONLY. XPBURN is a GUI for the internal xp burning function. EASY ISO creator creates a ISO from files and folders. EASY ISO CREATOR runs under windows 95 till XP.

When you burn an Operating System or backing up any HUGE important files, be sure to burn the images or files at either 4x or 8x just to be sure. This is because burning it at a faster speed MAY cause the files to be corrupted and installation to be a failure. It might not happen but on the safe side, just do it.

P.S. Happened to me before so just wanna share it with you all.

read that Fi5hBone uses 9 CDs to burn all the ISO files. Will use 8 more CDs to burn.
