    I have downloaded Linux few days back and want to create a boot up CD. But I can't copy the files to CD after downloading them (downloaded into a computer running Vista)

    Just wondering how to create a boot up CD without a machine running Linux??

    Help please.

    You must burn the ISO file as an image (not data CD or anything else) to a CD or DVD. Your burning application should support this.

    Step # 1: Copy boot.iso to /tmp

    Type the following command,
    # cp boot.iso /tmp
    Unmount cdrom
    # cd; eject
    Step # 2: Insert blank CD R/RW media

    Find device name:
    # cdrecord -scanbus
    Write /tmp/boot.iso to blank cd, enter:
    # cdrecord -v -dao dev=1,0,0 /tmp/boot.iso
