> Hey,
  If you're getting an option to choose between datacd and something else
you're probably in the wrong section of the burning program.
  If you just select 'data cd' and then put the iso file on the disk then
you will not get a bootable cd.
  When burning an iso you want to burn a 'saved
image', 'disk image', 'saved project' etc. (I believe the nero
terminology is as
such).

cheers,
Owen.
