View Full Version : Making FC 5 iso CD bootable from Red Hat 8.0

Can anyone please help me. I have downloaded all the iso images for FC 5.
That is five installation discs and the rescue image.
I want to burn, at least the first image onto a CD that is bootable.
I currently run linux red hat 8.0.
I have xcdroast and other writing tools installed but cannot get one of them to recognise any 'boot image' to install.
Also the writer tells me that it does not recognise the 'iso' image.
Any helpful suggestions welcomed :eek:

Use the command-line tool "cdrecord". If you get errors with it, post the exact command line you used and the error messages you received.

Hi there
Thanks for the suggestion, however I have read the man pages for cdrecord very carefully and there is absolutely no mention of making a recording bootable. I wonder if you have a different version to the one that i have?
I am sure that there must be an easier way to do this.

The .iso image contains everything needed to create a bootable disk. You don't need any extra options, just burn it on a disc.
