What do I do with an iso-file/a CD-image?

Burn it on a CD/DVD

On Windows 7 and newer and most desktop environments for Linux/Unix you should get "Burn on CD/DVD" or a similar menu item when right-clicking on the ISO-file, with which you can burn the image onto a blank disk.

On Mac OSX you will need the TODO

Unter Mac OSX benötigen Sie das "Festplatten-Dienstprogramm". Dort können Sie die ISO-Datei in die linke Spalte ziehen, auswählen und auf "brennen" klicken.

Most burning software will also provide you with the option of burning an image.

Create a bootable USB-stick

Instead of using a CD or DVD you can also use the image to create a bootable USB-stick. You can use UNetbootin or LinuxLive for example to do so. (Wikipedia has a List of other tools)

Config examples for using the server as source for packages

CentOS / Scientific Linux

baseurl can be defined as single as well as multiple URLs. For using multiple ones it's a good idea to use the fastestmirror-Plugin


	name=CentOS-$releasever - Base


	name=Scientific Linux $slreleasever - $basearch
	gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-sl file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-sl7
