Ok, my live cd burning didn't go well.
I downloaded the lxde-mini iso and saved it to my documents. When I put the cd in, k3b came up and give me the option burn the iso which I did. After I put the cd in my other laptop and asked it to check the media it FAILED.
Where did I go wrong? I admit I have always loaded the distro's I have tried from disc I get from Linux magazines and never burned the iso before. OR I should say I have not been successful.
Walk me through this please, I hate being a 44 year old NEWB!
1: Download the .ISO
2: Check to be sure the md5sum matches (actually, if you are using k3b, it does this before the burn)
3: slow down the burn speed to the lowest setting that your burner will accept.
4: There is a way to check the md5sum after the burn on the CD but I am not sure/don't remimber how.
5: If all else fails, use different media. I have found problems with some aaaachuewFuji, and Luck with others ,,coughMemorex.
