Re: Computer does not recognize iso in CD



Thank you to all who helped. I did burn the iso and now the files exist on a
CD but I haven't tried to install it yet. I can see it on this computer that
I am typing on now so all appears to be fine. Now one other question. When I
do install Ubuntu on the other computer will Ubuntu ask if I want to format
the existing hard drive? That is what I want to do. Remove Windows and have
Linux only on the host.

Thank you;

Sherman

I just copied ubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso to CD. When I booted the
computer, which presently has WinXP, the CD light blinked but the computer
continued to boot into Windows. How do I get the computer to recognize the
iso file?

Thank you;

Sherman
