I never knew the BASICS could be so complicated. What basics did you have trouble with?
If there's a place for true newbies such as myself....Vector for Dummies, perhaps?Post to our "Vectorbie Questions" forum.
It seems to be taking forever just for my computer to download the files in the first place...everyone I speak to, tells me it should only take a few minutes. You got some bad information there. With a telephone broadband normal speed is about 155kbs. So as the ISO is almost 700MB large it will take about 1hr 20 minutes or so to download. If you have cable broadband at average 500kbs then it will take about 25 minutes to download.
Ok, the first basic is just which files to burn....I haven't even gotten the Vector downloaded all the way yet, but I see a zip file and an iso file...both are not complete yet. I just downloaded a program called "ImgBurn", which someone suggested I get to do the job. That, I could manage. I've been told I'm not supposed to be getting a zip file, so the more I talk to everyone, the more confused I'm getting.
Bottom line.....getting the darn thing burned has been a big problem for me.
Thanks for sending me to the newbie section...I'm sure I'll be spending a LOT of time there..LOL!
Ah yes, the time thing seems logical...the 1 1/2 hrs, that is. I get confused easily, so one little bit of wrong info turns my brain upside down. I must practice NOT to let that happen...
Thanks so much for the info. Once I get both Vector downloaded, I'll be back with questions on the next step....burning it!
