If you want a live distro that runs entirely from CD, then get one of these:

Knoppix is probably one of the most user friendly to start with. Otherwise if yo uaer looking to install to your hard-drive, then pick one of these:

http://distrowatch.com/

CentOS is probably an excellent choice if you are planning on it being a server:

http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=centos

or Ubuntu if you are planning a desktop:

http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=ubuntu

Once downloaded, burn image to CD:

i'm looking for information on settings like these http://www.tacktech.com/images/articles/297/create03.png
but for linux ( well, more precisely opensolaris but i assume linux settings would work )
( ones above are from bootable windows tutorial @ http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=297 - i got an error with those,
"can't load NTLDR" )

Basically, you just burn the iso!  - The iso *INCLUDES* the bootable element.

>[ i think nero default mentions some Dos....ima, will it work ? ]

If you're doing this, then you are *not* burning an iso! This is if yo uhave put 'ordinary' files on the CD, and wish to create a bootable capability. (Installation isos are bootable anyway - doing this stops them working properly!)

>i got an error with those, "can't load NTLDR" )
Because you didn'y follow the instructions - by installing a DOS bootloader on the CD, you have over-written the NTLDR, so obviously it wouldn't work!

And back to the original question:

>how do i create bootable linux cd with nero 6 ?
Follow the instructions on burning an iso - If it's supposed to be bootable then it will be!

>Image file ? where do i get this one ?
You don't need this, it is part of the iso image!

If you really want to understand the spec:

http://www.phoenix.com/NR/rdonlyres/98D3219C-9CC9-4DF5-B496-A286D893E36A/0/specscdrom.pdf

..but it's a lot easier to follow the instructions already provided.
