How to burn?
Hi, I just downloaded Mandrake 9.1 from here. I tried to burn it in Nero but, Nero says that it is a foreign image. So how would I burn it to a disk? Thanks.

What version of Nero? If it's a relatively new version you should be able to burn .iso images no problem... start Nero, go to File>Open and under "Files of type:", select "Image Files (*.nrg; *.iso;*.cue)" at the bottom of the drop-down menu and browse for your Mandrake .iso file.

It is the newest version. I just updated it. That is exactly what I did. The name of the file is Mandrake91-cd1-inst.i586. So I have no clue what type of file it is because it comes valid with WinRAR. On that site it says that it is an ISO but who knows.

Have you tried adding the .iso extension on the file? WinRAR will recognize it as a valid iso even without an extension but I don't think Nero can do that.

compare the checksum of the iso to the posted value...you may have a corrupted download.

The file on that site has the iso extension what did you use to download it?To think there might be giants.

if this is the file you d/l'ed, know that this is NOT an ISO file!
you need to d/l the ISO files if you want to create the CDs.

Okay I just went there again using IE6, the name displayed goes .... ,but start a download or look in the stat bar it ends in .isoTo think there might be giants.

I used IE6 to download it. I really don't know how to do the checksum thing. I mean I sorta know what it is but, not how to use it.

I got rid of the .i586 thing at the end and change it to .iso instead. It worked on the 2nd iso and the 3rd iso. Nero said that the first iso's block parameter or something like that was wrong?
