Only way to find out is to try it.

Some people use Nero to make cd's bootable.

You have to put in the right info (in Nero), to make it boot from the cd or dvd.

If you dont, it wont boot.

What you can try and do is, find out if the Site you downloaded from has what is called an MD5 Checksum, a series of characters.

What you then do is find a program that will generate an MD5 sum from the ISO you have downloaded. Then you compare the two sums. If they are the same, it means that it's an exact copy.

hrm, so every thing worked great but now for some reason im having problems with the nvidia display drivers, after ive isntalled them in teh devicemanager my nv6600 has an error.

it only lets me run at 800x600 and 1024x768.
also in teh advanced tab of the display properties there is no nvidia options.
this irritates me.
