Hi All

I downloaded the first ISO image for sarge and burned it to disk.
But I cannot get this thing to boot off dqa0 . It just says that it is
not a valid boot block. I can put the images on a floppy by formating
the floppy
#fdformat /dev/fd0 then # mk2fs /dev/fd0 and using e2write to write the
bootlx to the disk, but the floppy is too small for all the images ie
the initrd , vmlinuz , etc. How can I burn a bootable cd?

Hi guys

I sorted it out, you must burn the image in Nero , not as an added data
files

so all ok
