Most likely you just copied the .iso files to the CD-ROM, instead of burning them as an image. You can verify this by checking the contents of the CDs; if there's only one large file, that's the problem. How to restore a .iso file to a CD is dependent on your CD-recording software; for example, with Roxio software on Windows, you should be able to right-click on the .iso file and choose Record to CD. -Warren Block * Rapid City, South Dakota USA _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
