Related to your how-to article here;
i'm embarrassed to say that being able to make either a bootable or "live cd" as evaded me entirely. i would love to ditch Windows entirely and permanently, but i can't even seem to start the Kubuntu install.
What am i doing wrong please?
i downloaded the kubuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso file to my x86 Windows desktop system using Firefox from here;
then using Nero i burned (at 8X) and verified the file to CD-R.
But when i try to run or boot from the CD (and there have been several other Linux distributions/versions, on other x86 Windows machines that i've tried as well), absolutely nothing happens...it just boots straight in to Windows. The CD drive barely blips, let alone try to spin up or read.
This has got to be a perfectly obvious problem...so sorry to be a bother with it...but i appreciate your attention.
I'm hoping that any updates/replies that happen to his thread will also come to my email, but in any case i'll check back here soon...as i am am DONE with Windows forever and really need a good stable solution. And no dual-boot thing either.
