<hr>When I opened the Creator Classic option and I click on File I see one option which is called "Record CD from CD Image"
When I select this option it shows a window "Record disc from Image File" and I can drill down to the Linspire .ISO file OK and when I select this file a new window opens called "Record Setup" which if I clicked the OK button it would burn the CD<hr>
Hi again Max! That portion I've quoted sounds like it is EXACTLY what you need to do. I haven't used the Roxio software since it was called Adaptec, and I haven't burned CDs with anything in Windows for I don't know how long. So unfortunately, if the instructions that I've quoted above don't do it for you, then let me know, and I'll get someone with Roxio knowledge to pop in and help out.
As for expanding the .iso file, creating the cd from the "image" does it automatically. There is software "out there" that will do it, and make the file system visable, however I wouldn't know what to suggest to you to use.
Try the "create from image" option you have found, and let me know how it goes.
Good luck with Linux!
