burn bootable CD on WinXP from ISOs

    Some time back I created a set of bootable Linux CDs from ISO files.
    Unfortunately, I can't recall what Windows software I used to burn them.
    I'm a little short of neurological RAM, I guess.

    Can someone please point me to some clear directions on how to use, for
    example, Nero or something like it? I tried with Nero following
    instructions at http://www.bay-wolf.com/bootcd.htm and ended up with a disc
    that will start in WinXP, but won't boot. I also tried Alcohol 120%, with
    the same result.

    I'm running WinXP Pro.

    Thanks.

    The isos you downloaded are already bootable (at least cd1) and you just
    need to check "extras - burn cd image" (or "files" - burn cd image
    depending upon nero version), then select your iso from the file selector
    box.
