Hello everyone,

I just downloaded a disk image of the install disk for RedHat 8.0. In my CD-Writer when I view the properties dialogue, it gives me a choice between the ISO 9660 filesystem and the Joliet file system. Which one should I choose to burn this disk? Also, it has two modes for wrting: CDROM and CDROM XA. What is the difference between these?

As a final question, what would be the general system requirements for upgrading to RedHat 8? I am alredy running 5.2 on a Gateway 2000 (booting with LILO since BIOS doesn't even recognize my HD since it's not in FAT format). 120MHz pentium processor and somewhere around 32 or 40 megabytes of ram. I do plan on running the X-Window GUI.

Oh yes, and the HD capacity on that computer is 1 Gig

Thanks for your help
