    FreeBSD 6.2 ISO


    Hi,
    I have never used any .nix operating system.
    I just downloaded 6.2-RELEASE-i386-disc1.
    I used fdimage.exe and
    created bootable floppy disks boot.flp,kern1.flp,kern2.flp,kern3.flp.

    I assume I boot my PC with boot.flp
    and I would be required to provide ISO.

    How do I create bootable CD(ISO)?
    Unpacked folder "6.2-RELEASE-i386-disc1" has over 1 GB.

    Thank you.

    FreeBSD comes with 3 ISOs for CDs.

    Did you download a DVD ISO perhaps. By the way, you can use any decent CD burning software to create a bootable CD. All you do is point your software to the ISO image and that should take care of it all. You don't need to create floppies if you have a CD on your machine.
