Default Bootable CD

Hi Falko, I downloaded the GNOME 11 file and saved it to my CD. It is there, I checked. I took the CD to another (older) computer and tried to install like the instructions said. Unfortunately that computer is one I tried to install version 5 on and was unsuccessful because of repeating keyboard hits. Each time I start up the computer with the CD in it starts from the 5.0 loader and does not recognize a CD in the drive.

What would you suggest. Maybe the hardware is just not compatible. It is a Celeron 400, with 256 Megs of RAM and 20 Gig HD.

I tried going to a site that shows how to make the CD bootable but I could not follow the computerese.

Thanks for whatever you can do for me.
