Re: Burning .iso images

Hi,
It is a ISO image?? and then it should be bootable one.
or
U can do one thing
1)First boot the m/c with bootable cd and select linux askmethod
2)Simultaneously load the RHEL4 cd on other m/c which is configured as ftp or nfs server(linux m/c)
If the m/c is windows m/c u can load the cd on that m/c thru daemon tool software.So that u can share that drive thru ftp server..

let me know if u have any issues...

Re: Burning .iso images

Hi, the file that you have burnt to disc would be an ISO image. This actually contains the contents of a disk. So if you were to extract or view the contents of an ISO image file, you can see different folders & files that you would normally find on an installation media, like the kernel, initrd image and so on.

Please check the disc you have written and see if you have .ISO file sitting on it or different files & folders. Anyway, the correct procedure is to Write a disc image, rather than a data disc or anything else in your CD Writing software.
