I would like to make a bootable CD or DVD disk using the Fatdog64 ISO. (thanks JohnC_21 for your help in getting the ISO) I have the ISO file but do not know what tool to use to write a bootable version of it to a disk.

 

I do not need this but would like to try Linux. Also I'm not set on using Fatdog64 it was just the one I ran across while reading another thread. Any suggestions would be welcome.

If you have Windows 7 you can burn ISOs to disc natively.  Follow this article: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Burn-a-CD-or-DVD-from-an-ISO-file.  The procedure is similar in Windows 8/8.1 and 10.  XP and Vista does not have that feature but you can use a program like SOburn to do the job.

Hi Dallas Jack,

What version of Windows do you have?

See this post for instructions on how to burn an ISO file to CD or DVD using Windows 7 or 8, or this post if you use XP.

I'm back on Windows now. That was very interesting and a lot to take in on one setting. I think I need to find a Linux tutorial and do some studying.

 

I have plans to install it on a SFF PC and maybe making a HTPC out of it.

 

Thanks again to everyone for the assist.

You're welcome.

The first part of this tutorial covers the basic steps for a frugal (recommended) installation of Puppy Linux.

If Puppy is all that will be installed on this computer, you would be as well to use the Grub4Dos bootloader that comes on the CD.
