OS and CD burning

OS Distribution (distro’s)

Normally done with .ISO image files

Ubuntu 10.04 has LTS which means long term support, this means almost all the bugs are fixed.

10.10 BETA version still has bugs to be ironed out

  • nero extension is .nrg
  • mac extention is .dmg

*To create ‘live CDs’ (boot cds) you need image burning software,

e.g. nero powerIso (commercial) or Imgburn (open source)

  • Most OS files are hidden so you need to use ‘copy image file’ to copy it to disk so that all of it is transferred


  • You can have 4 primary partitions on a computer

OS directory structure

Divided into

  • User created directories
  • Font directory
  • Program files directory
  • Off-line files and folders

*Folders and directories are interchangable terms
