If you have Brasero on your Ubuntu 9.04, open it, and choose to write an ISO on CD.

Hi :)

Usually just put a really cheap blank Cd in the Cd/dvd-drive and then double-click on the iso file that you downloaded.

Mario's answer does the same thing by a different route and either answer gets you to the 2nd of his screenshots. I found it interesting that the translations leaves the buttons in exactly the same place and everything looks identical except just in a different language :)

Oh, there is a Community Documentation page about this
but i don't think you need all that detail ;)

Please let us know how this goes!

Hi again :)

Before installing Ubuntu (or any other linux) i would recommend trying a LiveCd session on that machine first. Also before upgrading to a different release it is also good to try a LiveCd session

If a particular machine does not work well with the LiveCd then you have plenty of chance to post a few questions about how to make it work before ending up with an unhappy boot. It is very rare to find a set of hardware that Ubuntu wont work on but sometimes it is quicker and easier to try a different version of Linux as machines on the fringes sometimes prefer one distro to another. It is quite odd since all the different versions of linux are all so similar. Ubuntu works on more than most so it is best to try first.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)
