    How Do I Burn Bootable CD With My Knoppix Download?

    I downloaded Knoppix and burned the ISO image on a CD, but CD won't boot. How do I create a bootable image in Windows? Anything special I need to do other than just burn image on CD? Thanks.

    ummm, its already bootable. check you BIOS and move the cd-rom so it boots before the harddrive.

    I've enable CD-ROM boot in the BIOS, and I can boot other CDs. Can it be because I burned the CD using Windows?
    Thanks.

    When you burned your CD did you just burn it as a data (one big file on the disk) disk or use the option in your burning program to create a disk from an ISO image which makes the disk bootable and if you look at it in explorer then you would see a directory structure on it instead of the one big Knoppix file. BTW what program are you using so someone may be able to tell you which is the correct option to use.

    Stephen,
    I used Roxio Easy CD Creator and you are correct the file appeared as one big ISO file without a directory structure.
    As we speak I am using a utility called ISO Recorder and I hope it works. If it does, I'll post the results.
    However if you know a better program please let me know.
    Thanks.
