Re: Boot Manager ???

I want to see if I have a live dvd.

I need to install on my desktop (which has been sitting useless for over a month with linux 18; I was told on here that I need 19 because pc is too new for 18). I need to see if the dvd is good and then figure out how to boot the pc with it.
