Hey Oracle,

[I have modified the Subject line just a tad. It looked like you were

AMD64 is a whole different ballgame, use this directory instead:

I suggest you look for Nero Burning ROM, Easy CD Creator or "cd writing 
software" at As Steve said, don't just burn the file itself 
to cd.

Instead of buying a commercial cd burning program, you could buy a cd 
set. :-)

-disc1 does. -miniinst aswell, IIRC (enough at least to get a decent CLI 
system running). -bootonly I have doubts about.

HTH and good luck... Nico
