just get a blank dvd ,download the iso image and then burn the image onto dvd with Xfburn,its that simple
to install set your BIOS to boot from dvd drive first

Re: Steam won't start after installation

Well i think this is the end of my short and rough ride with Linux Mint. It's just all too buggy and the small pros over Windows for programming stuff isn't really worth the struggle.
