How to burn Centos 5.7 CD/DVD from iso

Postby Art11 » 2012/02/27 01:57:41

I downloaded 8 iso files. Have no idea how to create CD/DVD from those 8 files. They do not extract into a single image file as expected... Please help.
Thank you.

How to burn Centos 5.7 CD/DVD from iso

If you downloaded 8 files then you have the CD images. They need to be burned to CD media and not unpacked. See FAQ #15. How do I download and burn the CentOS isos?

If you really wanted DVD media you could have downloaded DVD-1of2, and optionally DVD-2of2, from one of the repositories that features direct DVD downloads, or used a torrent. To create a DVD from what you have see CD to DVD Media but it will require dual-layer media for a single ISO image. If you do want to extract the contents for a local mirror repo then see Creating Local Mirrors for Updates or Installs.
