I recently downloaded this
and i burned the file pclinuxos-p93a-bigdaddy.iso
and brned it to a CD.
However, when i select boot from cd, it dosent work. The screen goes black and goes back the the regular start up. I can keep hitting F12 all i want, its still gonna go back.
On the CD is
the folder: boot
the folder: isolinux
the file: livecd.sqfs

why isnt this working?

did you verify your download by MD5 or sha1sum? The download could have been corrupt. Also, the did you burn it properly? Usually you have to use the burn a disc image type of option. Third, you may simply have had a deffective disk. It happens.
If someone tells you to su rm -rf /

You need to find the "Burn ISO File" button in your CD burning program. I use Cheetah Burn, that gives me a pretty easy way to burn ISO's.

Also try turning down your burn speed. Use the mediacheck option from the boot menu
to verify the disk.

Try using magiciso to burn this iso file to cd again.It may work out.
