    @Guru:

    That's the whole idea.

    Seriously now, If I can't make at least ONE person crack a smile, or laugh, in the course of the day, I feel like I shoulda' never got outta' bed.

    Life is much too serious, what with all the Horse Hooey going on in Washington, the Middle East, India, Pakistan, (etc.), that if we don't get a chance to laugh - we're severely doomed.

    p.s. My latest project is using 2k8Server-R2 with HyperV to help migrate another server to 2k8-R2. As handy as EasyBCD is on "real" hardware, it's worth it's weight in Royal Wedding Cake when used in a virtual environment. It makes binding and un-binding particular virtual disks to particular virtual machines almost child's play.

    And it would be child's play if I could convince my fingers to actually hit the key I was aiming for!!!!

    What say ye?

    Did that. And boy was that depressing. . . . .

    I guess with my measly 12-or-some-odd posts, I rate as P.O.S., Rank Newbie, or "He's only in it for the Beer."

    I cannot even imagine getting to the 300,000 gazillion postings needed to become even a polka-dotted wizard, let alone the Platinum, encrusted with diamonds, rubies and emeralds wizard that some of you folks are.

    Maybe what I need to do is get myself an avatar that looks like it came out of a bad science-fiction movie, like Ex-Brit's!

    P. S. @ Ex-Brit. I'm in Worcester MA. Maybe we should get together at a Neutral Pub sometime soon? Then you can tell me how absolutely GHASTLY the "yank" version of Guinness is over here. If it's anything like the "American" version of Baltica #7 (A Russian beer that I think is actually DRINKABLE), it should probably be on the EPA's Superfund List as Toxic Waste.

    Baltica #7, in Russia, is actually a decent beer. (And coming from a long-time beer-hater, that's saying something!) Over here, that's a horse of an entirely different hue. It's incredibly bitter by comparison, and tastes absolutely foul into the bargain. Though watching the tadpoles swimming amongst the algae looked interesting. . . .

    What say ye?

    Nice thought but I don't travel well at the moment - just getting over an illness. Thanks anyway. We get genuine Irish Guinness here and the local beer is good - Molson Canadian + 100's of assorted brands & imports of course, but it's been a while since I ventured to the pub, I hate to say.

    Greetings:

    My experience is mainly in hardware, mostly electronics & industrial controls, but I also enjoy computer tweaking which resulted in my infatuation with Linux distros. And that's what brought me here: I was referred to this site by another computer help forum when I sought help removing a Linux version that I didn't like from my HD which also contains Win7. Regards.

    It's free as a torrent, but if you got it from here or another source just burn the entire download to a CD.
    Don't do anything to it first.
    It isn't a zip or a rar file that needs to be unpacked.
    If your system leads you to believe it is, then you've probably got it set up incorrectly with the true filetype invisible, and the ISO association taken over by something like Winrar.
    Set your folder options like this, and just burn it as an ISO directly with the W7 burner if you have W7.
    Vista cannot burn ISOs so get yourself a free copy of Imgburn and use that. It works fine.

    @Terry60,
    If you're sixty (Terry60), then *I* must be ancient! (jharris1993)

    @James,
    Let me amplify hat Terry said a little bit:

    An "ISO" (. . . .-dot-iso) is an *image* of a CD or DVD, where every single sector is read, starting at sector 1, going all the way to the last sector of the disk - as if it were a gigantic file - one sector at a time. It's not just the data, it's all the metadata, disk structure, VTOC, etc. etc. etc. - along with all the data on the disk.

    To "burn" an ISO, you need a burning program that knows the special method to burn an ISO. I use CDBurnerXP (freeware) which - despite it's name - works wonderfully on Vista/7. I am also sure that Terry's suggestion is also excellent. Both of these programs will allow you to:

    • Burn an Audio Disk
    • Burn a Data Disk
    • Burn an ISO image

    You want to select "Burn an ISO image", and then select this particular file. Pop in some blank media and then burn away!

    Some programs also allow you to "Create an ISO image" - this is the WRONG choice - do not pick it by mistake.

    If the file is less than 700 megs in size, burn the ISO to a CD. If it's larger than 700 megs, burn it to a DVD.

    By the way, the term "ISO" comes from the designation "ISO-9660" which was the original format for CD's standardized in the 80's. The group that standardized this format was the International Standards Organization, hence "ISO". Nowadays there are a number of standards other than ISO - Joliet for "Microsoft" format CD's, HPFS for Mac format, and DVD's have a format all their own. But the images of all these different formats are still called "ISO's".

    BTW, it's really not necessary to change the file association - so long as you select the correct file with your burning software, and tell it to burn it as an ISO image. However if you do decide to change it, it might make it a little easier to burn - depending on the software you use.

    What say ye?

    Jim.
