burning the downloaded images
I'm a relative newbie to Linux and I had some problems
burning the images. So here's some tips for the cd faq
First, for K3b one should use 'tools > cd > burn cd image'
in stead of the icon-options in the bottom screen.
Secondly, it might help to point out that what is to
appear on the cd is not downloaded file itself. If people
see that on the cd they'll know why it doesn't boot (yes,
I speak from experience, shame on me!). Instead, they
should get a number of files and directories on the cd.
Finally, it's worth pointing out that the unpacking of the
iso image during burning takes time, so it's better to
select a lower burning speed (at least, I assume that's
the reason it went wrong for me the first time).
By the way, I have an Athlon 64, but I've downloaded the
i386 version, and I'll wait for the release of Etch to get
full 64 bit support. Does that make sense?
