Alright,
I suck at cd's and making software stuff.
To be honest i'm a harware guy.
Anyway I downloaded Damn Small Linux for my laptop but i don't know how to make a bootable disc.




Please help

If you downloaded an "iso" file and have access to a copy of software like Nero, use its "Burn disk image" option to write the file you downloaded to a disk.

But before burning it to your CD/DVD media, make sure you check its MD5 hash first and compare it with the original that comes with the website you downloaded you ISO. When you're sure that it's identical with the original, burn it at a lower speed (4x).
