Hi. I am totally new to Linux and it does get confusing.
After I downloaded Linux Mint 14 I burnt it to DVD with Nero Image burner and tried to check it with md5sum but it doesn't work. On restart it won't open automatically but I can hold F8 and DVD is listed and will open from there. On 'My Computer' page under 'Devices with removable storage' it says 'install linux mint 878 MB.
When Mint opens the desktop shows the Logo and 3 icons top left corner, Computer Home and Install - and bottom left are 5 icons, menu, show desktop, Firefox, terminal, and files. They all open with no problem. So I'm wondering if I should install it on the chance everything will work.
My OS is windows xp home
