I want to download a software, then make a CD image.

First, I use Windows 2000 pro, download the software.
Download to an empty hard disk, only one partion, save to the disk?
Download to an empty partion, save software to this partion?
Download to an empty folder of an empty hard disk, save software to this folder?
Download to an empty folder of an empty partion, save software to this folder?

then use another computer, install windows 2000 (update not install), install antivirus software (definition not up to date)

attach the rewritable CD-ROM

install the CD buring software

attach the hard disk that the download software locate

log on as user

use antivirus software scan the hard disk that the download software locate

then burn the software as a CD image

(never connect to internet)

does this is the safest way for this hard disk?

How to avoid virus from internet spread to the new operating system by this hard disk that the download software locate?

Most Anti-virus applications will scan any file you download, but to be completely safe, create a special folder and download the file to it, and then perform a manual scan of the file (if the file is zipped, then you will need to unzip it before scanning). Once the file is scanned and considered "safe" you can then save it to a CD and then install the application to another computer.
I hope I understood your question correctly and this information helps you.

John
