I've just come in to possesion of a couple of old surplus laptops from work. I'd like to put linux on it. At home, and at one of my consulting jobs, I run RH 6.2. I realize that's a bit old, and I'd like to try some of the new features. But where can I get it?
I saw that RedHat now charges for it on their web site. I went to CheapBytes and they had it for sale at the regular price; and they had something called PinkHat.
I can t say for sure how to burn with Windows (like Nero, CDRWIN, Roxio), but if you run linux already, XCDRoast will ask you to setup the program as to where to look for images and where to save images. Just put the iso there and the rest is pretty self explanatory.
Now, I hope somebody backs me up or corrects my mistakes. This is 3 or 4 year old info, so ... Nero uses .bin files IIRC, so rename the iso to a bin file instead and it will work. Whatever Nero uses for cd images can be done like this.
Essentially all an iso is an exact blueprint of how to build a CDR. Where and what files to write, how big, whether its iso9660/Joliet/Romeo and has rockridge support ... blah blah blah. So its not some file that you burn so when you look at the cdr, it has one .iso file. Its like a config file + data. I hope that makes sense. But IIRC Nero and CDRWin can be done really easily like that. No real need for a cue file, since its an iso.
Under "File Type," the ftp server has the .iso file listed as "Easy CD Creator Image File." So, after I'm finished downloading them to my hard drive, does this mean I just need to change the name of them before I burn it to cdrom? I'm downloading them to a windows machine, and coincidently, I have Easy CD Creator on this machine.
