Ubuntu is distributed over the Internet as standard CD images, called .ISOs. To install it, you first need to burn the .ISO file onto a CD. You need a working CD/DVD burner for that. This page explains how you can do it using Windows 98 / ME / 2000 / XP / 2003 Server, Mac OS X and Ubuntu. If the CD writing fails, try writing at a slower burn speed.

There are also other methods of GettingUbuntu.

On Windows 98 / ME / 2000 / XP / 2003 Server

  1. Verify the .ISO file. [http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/using_md5sums.html Instructions on OpenOffice.org].

  2. Download and install [http://www.cdburnerxp.se/download.php?latest ISO Recorder].

  3. Launch the ISO recorder > File menu > Write disk from ISO file > select the ISO file.

On Mac OS X

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

  1. Launch Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility)

  2. Drag the .ISO to the sidebar of the Disk Utility main window.
  3. Select the .ISO where you just dragged it, and choose (Menu > Image > Burn...)

  4. Insert a blank CD > Burn.

  1. Verify the .ISO file. [http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/using_md5sums.html Instructions on OpenOffice.org].

  2. Find the .ISO image in the file browser (available at Places > Home menu on top of the screen.)

  3. Right click on the .ISO > Write to Disc...
