I have a live cd iso file, and desire to use it in VMWare server to see how it goes.

I set up normally, then once done, I create a new cd and have it set to the iso file and as start at start up.

I never get this right. Ever. Nothing happens when I do this, VMWare just gots back to my configuration files when I try to boot.

Can someone who is familiar with this please post in this thread the steps one goes through to boot from a live cd iso file? I have searched this section of the forum several times and don't see a thread on it.

I'd like to link to this in my own PMs so I can find it next time I want to try out a new distro is why I want this info here.

Thank you.
