DVD to CD-R Burning

Postby Albinoni on Sat Jan 21, 2006 1:20 pm

I have a DVD of Debian 3.1 Linux which came on a cover of Linux Format Mag. But what I want to do is to burn this onto CD-R's. Now I dont have a DVD burner but do have a CD-R burner and a DVD-ROM. Is it possible (using Nero) to do this.

i don't know if this will work.
what files exactly do you have on that DVD-ROM ?

usually when you install off CDs, the installer expects a few discs and prompts you at various time to insert disc #3 etc.
if you just copy the files from the installation DVD and split them across a few CDs it might confuse the isnstaller - it expects to see certain files on the installation media (disc #1) but won't find them.

then again, if you're doing a minimal installation you might not run into problems.

maybe Socheat will see this (he's an expert at Linux).

you can always download CD installation ISOs and burn them to CDR.

thats probably the easiest way

but if you already have a dvd-rom drive, just install off that
