I have a new PC
I have recently downloaded mandrake 10.1 ISO images off of the net
I now need to make these CD's bootable
The Goal is turn on the computer, have the BIOS setup to boot from CD, and begin the LINUX install

Please advise.

    Accepted Solution

    See here for instructions on burning the ISO images:

    The images themselves are almost certainly bootable.

    you need to use your favorite cd burning software and burn the disk using the iso image.  the image is bootable by default..
