I now have Linusmint 14 on a DVD that will auto play. I have the option of installing it or run the program for the media(DVD).
When the disk was originally burned, it went in as an ISO file. As MarkB stated it needed to be an image file. I took a second look , and Windows7 will do just that. Now I have a disk that will auto play, and also have the option to run the program form the disk. That was my original intent. That is use the program from the disk. I'll have to see what it looks like.
Maybe I won't let all the smoke out!.......later

Well done, Guido.

You'll probably find running the "live" image to be a bit slow, but it will at least give you an opportunity to see what Linux has to offer.

Just a few tips, to get used to differences in how things work in the UNIX world as opposed to DOS and Windows:

Directory path names are delimited with forward slashes ("/") rather than backslashes ("\").

There are no drive letters. All files are located on a path below the "root" (top level) directory, regardless of what physical drive they're on. Drives must be "mounted" in order to access them; mounting attaches the physical drive to some directory path below the root directory. A typical physical drive name might be "/dev/sda1" (first partition on SCSI drive A, not to be confused with DOS drive "A:"), but it might be mounted as the root directory "/").

Linux, being a multiuser operating system, sets ownerships and permissions on all files. System files are owned by user "root". (This may not be real apparent running a live DVD.) Users typically don't have write access to other users' files.

Hello MarkB_MI,

Thanks for the heads up. I have been fooling with puters before Windows came out.
I probably still have DOS of flappy disks.
Does anyone still use them?
Anyhow...its been a couple of weeks since I dowloaded Linus. It may take another couple to get to it. I may just get another drive, or partition this one. First though I'll need to get familiar with the new system. Never a painless transition, will see..........later,
