ISO

Postby Acid_1 » Fri Nov 23, 2007 3:47 pm

Hi! I've recently gotten rid of windows XP, and now I just have Linux Mint 4.0. Now, I just have a few questions. I partitioned my hard drive into 4 parts. 30GB for Linux Mint, 13.5Fat32 for Windows ME (For iTunes and a couple of games) and 17.somethingorother GB for Linux Musix (http://www.musix.org.ar/en/index.html), and 512MB Swap. Now, I have the ISO, but I am unsure how to burn it with Mint. Is there an app that comes with it, or is that seperate? Also, I previously tried to install Ubuntu and Mandrake onto my drive. I would have Windows and Ubuntu on, then would try to install Mandrake, then all I would get would be grub for Windows and Mandrake, yet I still could access my Ubuntu drive through Mandrake. Anyhow, I'm just wondering if I will be able to Install ME, Mint, and Musix all on one drive, with the option to boot any of them, not just two. Also, if I leave a Fat32 partition, will I be able to install ME on that partition, without windows wanting to remove all my other partitions?

open nautilus and navigate to the .iso file, note the .iso extension. Right click and select open with "CD/DVD Creator" then click the "write" box.

An iSO of the bootable will automatically become bootable.
Optionally there is a utility in Control Center to create a bootable disc but I am not sure if this is same as to creating a bootable for ISO
