How to burn the DVD from ISO Image file : CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.iso

Hi friends !

I downloaded ISO Image file : CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.iso for CentOS 5.1. I downloaded it with Download Manager. Now as I have WinRAR installed in my PC, the iso file is downloaded as a WinRAR format. When I use command prompt and check the full name of file, it is : CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.iso

I extracted the file in the folder: CentOS-5.1-i386-bin-DVD.

Now, please tell me..

Should I burn this folder as a Data CD in a normal way as we burn Data CDs with Nero StartSmart or there is any other way to burn ISO files ? or

If I burn it as a Data CD, taking this folder as Data, will the CD be bootable ?

I use to burn Data CDs/DVDs, burn from image files and copying CDs. I know that this is a very simple question to ask but please see that I have never burn ISO file for any of the Linux Edition. So I want to be sure that my DVD will be bootable and will work fine.

Thanks,

Hemant

If the ISO is bootable, then you can burn it as you did before.

You must select create CD from image file or similar wording. Just copying the iso to a disc will not work.

Using Nero, from the "Recorder" menu, choose the "Burn Image" command. It will ask you to browse for the image you want to burn; select it and press "Burn" from the toolbar. You will get a bootable DVD if the ISO image is bootable
