Ubuntu is distributed over the Internet as CD images, called ISOs. To install it, you first need to burn the ISO file to a CD. This page explains how you can do that in Ubuntu, Mac OS X and Windows XP/2000.

If this sounds too complicated for you, there are other methods of GettingUbuntu.

To burn an .ISO image onto CD you need a working CD/DVD burner. If writing fails, try selecting the option to write the CD at a slower speed.

== From within Ubuntu ==
''Note: When you put a blank CD in the drive, a "CD/DVD Creator" file browser will pop up
automatically. Close this browser. The following instructions do not use it.''

 1. Find the .ISO image in the file browser available at Places->Home menu on top of the screen.
 1. Right click on the .ISO and select '''Write to Disc...''' (about 3/4 of the way down the menu). Follow the instructions.

== From within Mac OS X ==

To burn most ISOs, you can use Apple's Disk Utility (Disk Copy in older versions).

 1. Launch Disk Utility (Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility)
 1. Drag the ISO to the sidebar of the Disk Utility main window.
 1. Select the ISO where you just dragged it, and choose (Menu -> Image -> Burn...)
 1. Insert a blank CD and press "burn".

== From within Windows XP ==

 1. Verify the ISO file. [http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/using_md5sums.html Instructions on how to do this are available at OpenOffice.org].
 1. Download and install [http://ISOrecorder.alexfeinman.com/ISOrecorder.htm ISO Recorder].
 1. Right click on the ISO and click "Copy image to CD".

== From within Windows 2000 ==
Unfortunately, [http://ISOrecorder.alexfeinman.com/ISOrecorder.htm ISO Recorder] doesn't work on Windows 2000. Here is an alternative method.
 1. Verify the ISO file. [http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/using_md5sums.html Instructions on how to do this are available at OpenOffice.org].
 1. Download and install [http://www.cdburnerxp.se/download.php?latest CD Burner].
 1. From the File menu, select "Write disk from ISO file", and select the ISO file you wish to burn.
