I didn't tell Roxio to use ISO explicitly.
In fact, I just looked at Roxio and I don't see ISO as option.
Can you please be a bit more specific as to how I can specify

Thank you.

I have a Dell laptop (latitude E6400) which came with

Windows vista.  I downloaded ubuntu desktop 9.0.4
to it, and burned dvd with it.  As I tried to boot from the
DVD, it seems to ignore DVD and goes to disk and
boots vista.

Hey -

Did you set the BIOS on the computer to look for a bootable system on the CD drive before looking at the hard drive?  The key command to access the BIOS flashes up on the screen when you start the machine. I think it is F7 but yours will probably be different.  Press that key during start up and you have a menu where you can change the start up configuration.  Also, once the live CD is running you can do a checksum to make sure everything on the disc is in order.

Give that a try and if you still have problems maybe one of the resident experts will chime in. I have never burned an Ubuntu ISO image to DVD, have always used a CD burned at a very low speed.  Are you sure you used the ISO option on Roxio and not the copy option?
