Hi
I have a large .rar program file that I need to (I'm guessing) put onto a dvd disk. How do I do that? Is it similar to an iso file? I have downloaded winrar but not installed it yet, which i believe is like a unzipping program, but I don't know what to do next.

And whats in the rar file?? If its an ISO, you'll have to burn it first

Hi Speedy,
I'm not sure as I'm waiting for it to finish downloading. So is a rar file just a compressed file and when you ?decompress/unzip it, I will have the actual file? That I can run/install or save onto a disk?

You got it its a compressed file, and you have to unrar it

Or use a program that can extract whats in it

If its an ISO you'll have to use Nero or a program that can burn ISO's to cd or DVD. So it'll boot

Download Winrar (http://www.win-rar.com/index.php?id=160&dl=wrar371.exe) to extract it
