    I'll try download and using ImgBurn, but I doubt it will make any difference.

    Oh, it's pretty helpful in asking you if something goes wrong.
    But you are bordering on something that doesn't work here, seeing as the image is bigger than your CD...

    Says on the download page: "Live DVD"

    So obviously you need to burn the image to a DVD.

    If Nero doesn't want to burn the image to a DVD, you'll need a different burn client.

    I checked out ImgBurn, and it let me burn the iso on a DVD, all fine.
    But now when I try to boot the live os, nothing happens. The computer boots as if though there was no disk in the drive at all. (And yes, the BIOS is set to boot from the CD/DVD-ROM before the harddrive)
    Any ideas why this isn't working?

    Is it a DVD image or not? A DVD image might be up to 4GB, and certainly more than 700MB.

    What happens when you check the DVD? I don't know about ImgBurn, but most CD/DVD burning software lets you check the checksums of the burned data and the original image to see if it was burned correctly.

    You are burning the image as an iso image, right?

    The computer boots as if though there was no disk in the drive at all. (And yes, the BIOS is set to boot from the CD/DVD-ROM before the harddrive)
    Does it whirr up the DVD drive to see if there's a disk in there first? If not, your settings are probably wrong. If it does, the disk is probably bad in some way.

    You might want to set the burn as 'bootable' most burners give the option to do this. I foun a nice simple app for doing this today: http://isoburn.sourceforge.net/ As i just got my new eeepc in the post; chucked eeeXubuntu on it. Good fun

    Eh, if the ISO itself is bootable, burning it to a medium will, indeed, make it bootable.

    Thanks Elysia. You're a * master! How the hell do you know every thing?
    Does that count as 9? ^_^

    That is not true.

    This is so true. I have done it many times on ImgBurn. With Windows XP CDs, and with a Linux DVD, as well.

    Okay, I burned Fedora-8-Live-KDE-x86_64.iso directly to the DVD using ImgBurn's burn image option. ImgBurn also successfully verified the data on the disk too. And I did assume (like Elysia said) that being a bootable iso, it would be a bootable DVD.

    The drive does whirr and rumble, and the startup is delayed by a few seconds, so it does see the DVD, it's just not booting off of it.

    and the startup is delayed by a few seconds
    don't you need to press somekey during this delay to actually boot from the disk?
    and have you set proper booting order in bios?
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    No, my custom bootdisk I made, and the windows setup bootdisk both work without me having to press a key. The reason the delay occurs (I'm assuming) is because it's check to see if it should boot off the disk it sees in the drive.

    And the boot order in my BIOS is: CD/DVD rom, main hd, second hd, usb sticks, others...
