Hello, I downloaded an .iso image of Knoppix to my desktop to replace a well corrupted Windows installation on a friends desktop, as a temporary fix, but when trying to burn the image to CD using ImageBurn I get a message saying: Invalid or unsupported image file format, reason: first image file part is less than 2048 bytes in size.
Has anyone any idea what the trouble is!
Thanks.

From the sound of the error message, it sounds to me like - in order to make the CD bootable the Disc must contain 2 partions, the first of which I assume is for Boot information, which apparently should be >= 2KB in size. As for why your having issues, I'm not sure, did you do a MD5 checksum (or whatever recommended similar algorithm they suggest you use) to check the integrity of you Download?
