I asked to be precise in both the filename and the CD burning process
for a reason. A lot of times, the devil is in very tiny details...
To tell us more about the errors you get might help to narrow down the
actual issue you're having. And what exactly is the computer you are
trying to install on? What is/was the OS running on that machine before
you tried to install FreeDOS?

Not surprising, it is named Boot *FLOPPY* for a reason, to clearly
indicate that this is NOT an ISO image to be burned...
