I went to the download pages for the Bitdefender & F-Secure Boot CD scanners intending to burn bootable virus scanner cds per several beginner's guides.
Both instructions include burning the iso image downloaded to CD. I have yet to successfully burn a boot cd from an iso image using nero. Is there a burning program -imageburn or cdburnerxp - that comes w/ clear instructions on how to burn a bootable iso file and whose installation won't conflict w/ nero?. Maybe it's only nero & roxio installations that conflict w/ themselves, each other and everyone else.
Both virus scanners are supposed to update after booting from cd via a network connection and I am curious how this will work and if it will work. My computers connect wirelessly to a router. Will there be a linux or linux-like network configuration wizard to put in the SSID & security key after the cd loads its little OS?
Finally, bitdefender had several download choices - 2008, 2009 & 2009 w/ md5. A nero update used md5, but I thought they provided the value on the download page to check against. I don't remember the details of how it worked. Can someone provide a little info on why bitdefender is providing that option, should I choose it and how I can expect to verify the md5 value?
