Re: [opensuse] burning of a suse install CD

My son is finally so far that he wants to try out opensuse. Up to now he has
only used Windows. The problem is that windows seems to neglect the .iso
extension. It does not show up. Only in chrome with which he made the download.
USB seems possible but was done without success. Read a lot on the web to no
avail. The iso file seems to be there as far as he can see.
openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64-2.8.0.iso
No burning a cd (dvd burner not available). Remember from past discussions that
such burning is not without problems.
Could somebody give me details about the burning process?



Windows generally doesn't display file extentions, but that's just an option that can be changed. The extension should still be there. As it's been a *LONG* time since I've used Windows to burn a disc, I can't offer more details. Also, other than the net install CDs, I think you can only get openSUSE on DVD. However, with a Linux box, you can share the iso and use the net install CD to install on another computer. If that's not available, you can do a net install over the internet.
