Burning Linux



I have an ISO image (.iso) of UBUNTU from a mag supplied cd.

I have Nero 6.

I have burnt the file to a cd but when I put it into a dell computer to boot and install the startup ignores it.

Perhaps I have not done this right. Do I just burn the ubuntu iso file to the cd and boot from it?


select burn image file in nero then select the iso and hit ok. After its been written make sure your bios is set to boot from cd


Yes you need to burn the Ubuntu iso as a iso and not as a file, also your Dell needs to be setup if not already set up so it boots from your CD/DVD drive first at startup.


Yes thanks, I had to burn as an image and this booted OK. UBUNTU now installed. Away we go!
