Ok, so I'm fairly new t linux, I've been using redhat9, and many things I've read have convinced me to change to Fedora. I've downloaded the iso images, but I don't know how to burn them to disk. I have tried just dragging the file to the Burn/// window that opens when I insert a blank cd but the copys the iso file to the cd not the iso contents.

So how do I do it? From console is fine solong as it works.

If K3B comes with Redhat, just open that up, and in one of the menus is an option to Burn ISO image. Otherwise, make sure you have cdrecord installed (part of the cdrtools as far as i know) and do the following:

cdrecord -scanbus

This will give you the SCSI id for your cdburner in the form of x,x,x, for example, mine is 1,0,0 . Then you can burn the ISO manually with:

cdrecord -v dev=x,x,x speed=YY filename.iso

where x,x,x is your SCSI id of your burner, and YY is the top speed of your burner.
